Not to mention "HELP ADVANCED WOMBAT".
Actually, if you want to see really good online help -- vastly better even than that of VMS -- take a look at PLATO. To become a PLATO programmer, all you'd need was for the admin to hand you your login credentials along with "sit down at a terminal and follow instructions". A logged out terminal would display "Press NEXT to begin" -- you'd do that and literally everything from that point on would be described by on-line help of one kind or another.
