As we don't really have a "help" section at the homepage currently
(Documentation links to the Community wiki, while the Support page does
have info on where to look for more help), there's really nothing to
copy right now. 
If it's a simple hmtl page, it should at least display all the text and
graphics well enough.
We still need to extend on user guiding. There is only a bit of that on
the community wiki and we've been talking about adding a User
Guide/Intro to the web page. 
If it ends up being all in one page, it should be pretty
straightforward. If many pages, I guess we need to change the links on
the pages manually. Should be no problem.
