   There is a SciTE mailing list at
http://mailman.lyra.org/mailman/listinfo/scite-interest

   You can try to set your properties similar (based on where you have
installed Python) to

command.help.*.py=$(CurrentWord)!G:\Python23\Doc\Python23.chm
command.help.subsystem.*.py=4

   Most of the time this needs a separate press of the Enter key or
selection from a list of topics after the documenation has been activated.
