Even if another web browser is set as the system
default (i.e., Omniweb), XDarwin help triggers Internet
Explorer. It would be preferable to use the default
client, as set in System Preferences -> Internet -> Web.

This is a common point of confusion on Mac OS X and hopefully
something that will improve in the future. There are actually
two places you need to set this preference. In System
Preferences -> Internet -> Web you set what application to
use to get things from the web. On the other hand if you have
a file with a .html extension sitting around on your hard
drive (such as XDarwin help), the default application for it
needs to be set separately. If you use Get Info in the Finder
on any .html file without a type or creator, and select
Application, you will be shown the default application to use
for these files. By default this is IE. Change this to
OmniWeb and the XDarwin help and all other (creator-less)
.html files will open in OmniWeb when you double click them.
(Note that there is a well known bug that causes this
preference and the web preference to revert to IE at the
slightest sign of trouble. Namely after installing a new
version of OmniWeb you will have to reset both preferences.)
However, there still is a real bug here. The XDarwin help
should be indexed so that the Help Viewer application handles
Actually this "bug" is really more of a feature request. Changing the name and type to feature request.
