Subject : Help navigation is confusing.

Error Class	: change-request
Error Location: documentation browser
Priority	: low
Bug Description ---------------------------

1. Go to the documentation browser, click on a category. Now, click on a hyperlink on that page. Now click on the category again - I expected it to navigate to the root page for that category, but instead it does nothing. To get to the root level, you have to click on another category first.

2. The documentation browser history quickly fills up to be a whole page worth of history items, so many as to be not worth the effort of scanning through the list and finding the page you want.

One suggestion to reduce the rapid expansion of the history list would be to have an option to not record internal navigations (navigating to an anchor) in the history list.

3. The order of items in the history is non-intuitive. They don't seem to be in the same order that I navigated to them.
