This is the proposed patch; it also renames
`help-default-arg-highlight', which has an unfitting name.


2009-09-21  Juanma Barranquero  <address@hidden>

        * help-fns.el (help-downcase-arguments): New option.
        (help-default-arg-highlight): Obsolete.
        (help-highlight-arg): New function.
        (help-do-arg-highlight): Use it.
        Suggested by Drew Adams <address@hidden>.  (Bug#4510)
