+<h1>RLG-Web β3 Help and Information</h1>
+<p>This page explains RLG-Web and how to use it.  Since the project is still under rapid development, details may change.</p>
+<h2>Browser Compatibility</h2>
+<p>RLG-Web has been tested using Firefox and Chrome; there should be no problems with recent versions of these two browsers.  Safari and Opera ought to 
+work, though they haven't been tested yet.  Internet Explorer 9 is compatible, but older versions  might not be.</p>
+<h2>Starting Games</h2>
+<p>If you have already registered an account, you can log in.  If not, create one with the "New name" button.  Once logged in, RLG-Web will list your
+saved games and let you resume them or start new ones.</p>
+<p>If there are games being played, you can watch them whether you are logged in or not.</p>
+<p>Use the "Stop" button to stop watching a game, or to force a game you are playing to save.</p>
+<h2>Playing Games</h2>
+<p>The games can be difficult to learn if you are not familiar with ASCII roguelikes.  The '?' key will tell you what each key does.  An 'S' will save 
+your game, and a 'Q' will quit.</p>
+<p>The original method of moving around was with the vi-keys.</p>
+<table style="font-size: 2em; margin: 0 5em">
+<p>This is the most reliable way of exploring.</p>
+<p>You can also move with arrow keys, or with the number pad, if your browser recognizes those keys.  If it doesn't, the simulated keyboard can imitate
+<p>Note: Super-Rogue does not work with the arrow keys or the number pad yet.</p>
+<h2>Saving Games</h2>
+<p>If you accidentally close your browser, don't worry.  If RLG-Web does not hear from you for a whole hour, it assumes you have gone away, and 
+automatically saves your game.  Your strength 18 character with the two-handed sword on level 22 is safe from bugs.  But the dragons are sure to get him.</p>
+<h2>Accounts and Passwords</h2>
+<p> doesn't use https yet, so you should not assume your password is safe.  Don't use the same one you use on your bank's website, etc.</p>
+<p>You don't have to supply a valid e-mail address.  It will only be used if you ask to have your password reset.</p>
+<h2>Missing Features</h2>
+<p>You can't watch games that are being played in dgamelaunch yet.  The opposite situation works: you can use dgamelaunch to watch games being played
+in RLG-Web.</p>
+<p>You can't change your password or e-mail address yet.  You will have to log in via ssh to do this, for now.</p>
