Perhaps the easiest fix would be to handle Delete same as Backspace here.

Yes, that could alleviate the problem in this particular case.

Please don't, that would be a horribly wrong change.

I have described an obvious problem: Emacs says press DEL to scroll, the user presses Del on their keyboard, and Emacs exits instead.

All that in a Help interface, which is supposed to help newbies. Not grizzled veterans.

It's a real problem, if you want people to actually use this feature.

What about adding (define-key map [delete] 'scroll-down-command) to help-map?
