Improves some context help and manual, puts deep manual links under Help menu.
If starting with .txt or .csv url (- for the purposes of monitoring a list - local or on server) that wasn't being archived (engine only archived html). This blocked other things from happening correctly.
If a web script (eg php) actually returned a document, eg pdf with the appropriate content-type mime type in the header, the file extension of the url was overriding the mime type. Now mime type takes precedence, which allows proper monitoring of such urls.
