Ctrl+Space popup with link to online PHP manual

There is a link "Online documentation" when i use the Ctrl+Space popup (see attachment)

1. Simple enhancement
I would like to have Alt+F1 shortcut on focused PHP core keyword. NB should open the "Online documentation" in default internet browser or in NB Help window.

2. Comfortable enhancement for offine use
Donwload html help pages as tar.gz from and configure NB to open downloaded html pages instead of go online.

I miss these features the most from eclipse-pdt.

- Alt+F1 shortcut "Go to manual".

    - Launch in default browser
    - Launch in netbeans window [options open in same or new window] 
        (i.e. if manual is already open, 
         reuse it or open manual in new one window) 

- PHP manual offline use

  - Should be packaged with netbeans, possibly as a independent plugin that can be updated with the latest php manual versions.

    - Open as default: Online/Local (Local should be fresh install default)

        Could then possibly have 2 shortcuts 

            - Alt+F1 will open in your "Open as default"
            - And then (for example) Alt+Shift+F1 will open the other

    - Manually update the local php manual
    - Manually change the location of the php manual.

- Bonus points: add also PHPUnit, Mysql, Symfony, Zend Framework etc manuals
- Alt+F1 "Go to manual" to also work for these too. 
- This is a feature that eclipse does not have.
