I just discovered that on Windows, the 3rd help option "Python Docs - F1" opens the local doc set whatever.chm in the Windows Help (HTML) Viewer. This is the same as the start menu choice. So on Windows, opening the same offline copy to the IDLE page, if possible, would be the thing to do. Perhaps the Windows code for opening the docs to the toc page can be reused to open them to the IDLE page.
