Actually I spoke too soon.  If the kioslave applies this same exact
replacement (help:/ -> file://) then the generated HTML does not render
properly in Konq.  If you take the kioslave output, save it to a file,
and then load the file containing the exact output, it works fine in
Konq -- even if the CSS and <img> links refer to help:/ instead of

Sorry for the noise but unless any KHTML experts are able to help
understand why rendering the same exact HTML as a file works, while the
same HTML from an kioslave does not, then we'll continue to see this
