No help index entry for WINDOW

There's no entry in the help's index for the WINDOW command.

There is one for "WIN" (which seems a little odd).

Yes, it's there. The funny part is that as you type w, i, n WIN pops up.
When you type d nothing happens, until you type o - that's when it jumps to
Window. It is logical, just not expected from the position of _WINDIR
between WIN and Window. Note: In the index Window is capitalized as shown,
but as a command it ought to be WINDOW.

It's in mixed case; other commands are in uppercase. And has sub-entries (that lead to variable functions). That's also unlike other COMMAND name entries. I'd say again, there's no help index entry for WINDOW.

It's in all upper case in the source; the Windows help compiler changes
it to mixed case.
