FreeDOS Help (hhstndrd 1.0.8a en + hhstndrd 1.0.8a de
+ hhstndrd 1.0.8a fr + hhstndrd 1.0.8a es)
xkeyb.htm, cdd.htm and a lot of other htm-files
were updated (including the hyperlinks in the network
The GNU Free Documentation license 1.2 is valid for
the network section of the help. This was corrected.
The english htm-text was slightly corrected (thanks
to Berki Yenigün). The hyperlinks were updated to actual
working links (footnotes were created) as far as
possible. Thanks to Berki Yenigün too!
The whole help now also has a French and a Spanish
translation. Thank you so much to Berki Yenigün and
Lorenzo del Toro Saravia!!! I know that this is a
lot of work!

FreeDOS Help (hhstndrd 1.0.7a en + hhstndrd 1.0.7a de)
If a mentioned command does not exist in FreeDOS or if the
command is out of date, the hyperlinks to these help files
were set into brackets "(command)" to show that the command
does not exist or is out of date. Updated the following
commands: cpidos, kpdos, sys, uide.
FreeDOS Help (hhstndrd 1.0.7 en + hhstndrd 1.0.7 de)
Removed a lot of bugs and added "Networking under DOS"
Removed empty lines from the htm files for space reasons.
Added some commands (e.g. rdisk).
Split the help into an internet version (with links within
a htm site) and a FreeDOS version (without links within a htm
site, no background pictures and so on so that less space is
needed on a diskette!)
Actualized the LSM files.
FreeDOS Help (hhstndrd 1.0.6 en + hhstndrd 1.0.6 de)
Created a completely new htm file system:
The text is NOT in htm so that it is very simple to correct
failures. You only have to look that the line is not longer
than 74 (!!!) characters.
Updated to a "unique look and feel".
Added German language support.
Added several commands and a lot of comments.
Built in a lot of new bugs (of course!)
