Correct me if I have the wrong impression, but would it help you
to have the GCG manual available on your PC or Mac (including graphics
examples) ?

I worked on a project to do this through hypercard some years ago,
with some Italian friends. Then GCG changed the way the documentation
was procesed, and we agreed to drop the project until GCG 8.0 was
out. It should be possible to do something similar with Windows help
files generated from the manual, and of course html.
