"online help" refers to built-in help and the term is not very telling.
Technically speaking I would think more of something like "embedded" or
"included" or whatever the proper English word might be. "local" is very
strange, especially if one day LO will become also a webservice. It will not
be "local" but it will be part of the package, "embedded"; if it won't be
there, there will probably be linking to the wiki, I guess.

I think that the dichotomy between local (included, embedded,
built-in, offline, internal) help and online (remote, external) help
is mostly clear to the users, although perhaps we could choose those
words more carefully.

I would like to see a unique name for this online/offline assistance
beyond just "Help". I'd recommend a name that we can use to brand this
resource so that users will identify it whether it's built-in to
LibreOffice or whether it's being accessed online -- something like
"Help Pages", "QuickHelp", "LibreHelp", or etc...
