Some of the suggestions applied to the konqi file manager as opposed to
the kdehelp center that you are refering to.

I guess you must be using kde3.1 Alpha/Beta?  At first I thought you meant
ver 3.0.1. But I have kde3.0.1 on one machine and kde3.0.3 on another
and they both show the +mag and -mag icons for changing text size and
are great IMO. But I see no way of configuring (i.e. adding icons) that 
particular help window even if I needed to.

So  it looks like that feature was deleted in the the later Alpha/Beta.

I have a very small .jpg of just that area of the window that I can send
you just so you know what everyone else is talking about, just let me
