I am looking at it from l10n perspective. "Online help" in most languages
means help online, on the web. While it is actually meant as
embedded/"inline"/offline help. So I just hope all translators translated it
properly. So maybe English names for it should be chosen carefully also for
non-native English speakers.

Yes, I agree completely that the name should try to avoid confusion in
other languages.

Perhaps it would be more clear if we treat the name as a proper noun,
the way we do with 'LibreOffice', and not translate it. So
"LibreOffice QuickHelp is available online or as a downloadable
add-on" would become (in my very poor French) "On se trouve <<
LibreOffice QuickHelp >> en ligne ou on peut le telecharger".

I'm afraid that won't work, users will takes it as an obscure extension
they don't even understand the name ;)
I like Martin proposal for 'internal/external', this is referring to the
same thing while one embedded and one in another place.
Others, what's your idea?
Kind regards
