The word template has been email from my hotmail address. If Kit can
figure out a way to deliver this document, people who wants to go this
way should be good with this.

The smcl command for linking to the pdf manual is {manlink}. I do not
know if this can adapted to open any other pdf files.

But the following codes, -phelp- will open it in Windows XP environment.

prog def phelp
args one
qui findfile `"`one'"'
cap shellout using `"`r(fn)'"'
di `"{browse `"`r(fn)'"'}"'
end

phelp `"Stata Help File Template.pdf"'
