    <ul>
      <li>You can tell a link from plain content by the hand-shaped cursor.
      <li> Besides browsing the web, Dillo also has basic file browsing
           capabilities included. So, entering <a href="file:">file:</a> in your
           Dillo URL window will give you the contents of your current
           working directory, and <a href="file:~">file:~</a> entered in the
           same place will point your Dillo browser right to your home
           directory...
      <li> Dillo, at this stage of development, is <u>not</u> not ready
           to render pages that use <b><font color="#5040a0">frames</font></b>.
           Nevertheless, it comes with a tiny handler (lynx/w3m-like) that will
           let you choose which frame to visit, one by one.
      <li> Dillo  has  <b><font color="#5040a0">context
           sensitive menus</font></b> using the right  mouse  button
           (available on pages, links, images, forms, the Back
           and Forward buttons, and the bug meter).
      <li> Some  of the functions in Dillo are handled by independent
           processes.  For  instance,  downloads come through <em>wget</em>.
           If Dillo exits, the download can continue (more details
           below).

    <ul>
      <li> You can scroll around your Dillo main window using
           CTRL+{PgUp|PgDwn|Home|End} or using the mouse middle button
           or mouse wheel. If nothing happens when keys are pressed, try
           <b> <font color="#5040a0">focusing</font></b> your Dillo main
           window first by clicking it (not on any link!:)).
      <li> You can use the space key as PgDn, and {'b' | 'B'} as PgUp.</li>
      <li> Similarly, you can use "<b>,</b>" and "<b>.</b>" as shortcuts for
           forward and backward buttons (mnemonic: those
           keys are usually labeled "<" and ">").
      <li> <b>Configuration:</b> If you want to change Dillo's
           appearance or behaviour, look at the options in your
           <b><font color="#5040a0">dillorc</font></b>
           file (if you don't have a copy in your ~/.dillo/ directory, get it
           <a href='http://www.dillo.org/dillorc'>here</a>).
      <li> Clicking the "Reload" button always requests an end-to-end reload
           of the page currently viewed, but it will *not* reload embedded
           images during this process.
      <li> Dialogs can be closed with the ESC key.
      <li> You can try the different control panel size options listed in the
           Tools menu, and make any changes permanent by editing your
           <code>dillorc</code> file.
      <li> The whole window area can be used to display the page. Just hit
           Ctrl-Space!

    This one is very useful;
    it can be found in the right-mouse-button menu<br>
    Find text is tuned for speed so don't hesitate to use it even for minimal
    searches.
    <p>
    <u>Semantics:</u>
    <ul>
      <li> You can search for substrings, words and sentences. </li>
      <li> To find a substring or word, just enter its text. </li>
      <li> To find a left-aligned substring, prepend it with a space. </li>
      <li> To find a right-aligned substring, append a space to it.</li>
      <li> To find full words only, prepend and append spaces to them. </li>
      <li> To find a sentence, enter the words and remember that the above rules
           apply for every word in it. </li>
    </ul>

    Dillo will scroll the page and highlight found text!

    Just hold down the left mouse button and move to select the
    area to copy. To paste, go to the target application and
    press the middle mouse button.
    <p>
    If you want to select more than one screen, hold the mouse button
    down and scroll with PgUp, PgDn or the arrow keys.
    <P>
    If you want to paste an URL into Dillo, do it on the "clear-URL"
    button (the "X" next to the location bar).
    <p>
    Note: If it doesn't work, please try again. There's a bug lurking there.

   Due to privacy concerns, cookies are disabled by default.
   That is, if you just compile and use dillo, it will reject

   Dillo has tabbed browsing. Just middle click to open a link or submit a
   form in a new tab. It will be automatically focused. If you want to
   customize this behaviour, adjust these dillorc options:
   <ul>
    <li><code>middle_click_opens_new_tab</code>
    <li><code>focus_new_tab</code>

   Press SHIFT to temporarily reverse the focusing behaviour.

   An image's alt text (or <code>[IMG]</code> placeholder) will appear in the

   Bookmarks are handled by the Dillo plugin

   This should be transparent to the end user. Please note that:
   <ul>
     <li>It is a good idea to keep a backup of your
         <code>~/.dillo/bm.txt</code>
     <li>The server will stay alive after closing dillo.
     <li>You can stop the server by sending it a KILL signal. Dillo
         will automatically restart it when it is needed.
     <li>If you don't have root access, install <em>dpid</em> and
         the <em>dpis</em>
         inside your <code>~/.dillo/</code> directory as explained
         in the README file.

   Dillo's <a href='http://www.dillo.org/help/bug_meter.html'>bug meter</a>
   shows the number of

   page. The bugs are caught at parsing time, so the
   error messages also show the line where they occur and provide a
   <b><font color="#5040a0">hint</font></b> of what was expected instead!
   <p>
   The primary purpose of the bug meter is to
   <b><font color="#5040a0">help</font></b> webmasters and page
   authors to polish the contents of their sites with a view to making
   them standards-compliant.
   <p>
   The bug meter is located at the lower right corner of
   Dillo. Left-click to see the messages, right-click for a menu.
