The documentation center package is a zipped package that contains a complete online help system that you can use to view all of the documents in the toolkit from an easy to use interface. It offers powerful features such as the ability to search through the collection of vCAT documents, display a pre-generated PDF of a document, and when served from a web server, access to Google Translate to translate displayed pages into dozens of languages.
