Hi,
In my GUI, I have a Help Menu. What I can think currently is to to have a "about" menu item there.
Can anybody suggest what can be there besides of "about" ?

Meaning
Help Menu
--Help
--About
the --Help is you actual help screen. You didn't mention if there was going to be one, you only mentioned "about".

Well in my help screen. It was a simple HTML page that had some screen shots, and step by step on how to search and book a flight. I also had how to start the client, even though for the user to see it the client had to already be up. But it was just copied from the beginning of me readme.txt file.
I also had a screen shot of a successful booking.
That was really all I had
