      I'm using different technique.
      :he help-tags
      now search for what you want
      /escape
      if it's interesting for you go:
      CTRL+]
      go back (to help-tags):
      CTRL+T
      go to next match:
      n
      ...

      Sometimes this technique is better because you can get also partial match.

      Hope this help
