Hm, the one called Help on my computer had no markup examples.
Same goes for the freshest version (I checked the source code, namely
the \rednotebook\templates.py): the template called "Help" has only one
tag example.

BUT when you make a *new* template or just click a Template button, RNB
pre-fills it up with some neat examples which really could be helpful
(see the part which begins with "=== This is an example template ===";
that is the part I am talking about).
So I guess what's needed is to copy these examples to the Help template
and to add a few other examples, like:

- showing the difference between a =Header= and a ===Header===;
- **//__combining the tags__//**;
- %comments (try switching to Preview mode!);
- erm, some quirks like using html, raw text, monotype text and all the
  other things.

Later on when you make relative image and file paths work, RNB could
auto-include a GPL-friendly image to show how these images work. A
smiley or something like that would be enough. =)

By the way, why making a separate template called "Help" when there
already IS a nice template that appears when you just click that
Template button? Maybe the only thing needed is just to refine that one?

Thanks for reading this letter,
