So it seems. I just checked my mothers KDE 2.2 system and it does
indeed have the pair of +/- text size icons and, overall, the
Help Center does seems like a simple extension of Konqueror.

Perhaps overlooked on the way to the final 3.1.

Thanks but I just looked at a live KDE 2.2 system. FWIW the current
KHelpCenter help actually details the two missing icons so I guess it's
an oversight and will show up in an upcoming release. This is a windowshot
of the KHelpCenter without these icons yet detailing their existance.

I was kinda hoping someone would know just the right XML config file
to edit so I could change one number from 12 to 24.
