Press <F1> above a feature and you go directly to the corresponding help
page. If not, then in josm the spec for the help page is missing - This
is a mainly adding a 'this.putValue("help", "...")' for the relevant

We have a very good design of help system, but there is nobody who cares
for the texts. And I fear also in future nobody cares.
It is natural that the help-links in JOSM will go slightly out of sync
when the doc pages aren't maintained.
