And put a box around it.

At the grub prompt if one issues the 'help' command, half the output
flies off the screen, except if the user owns a very tall terminal.

Therefore at the bottom of the help output, please add a line:

If there is too much help to fit on screen, do “set pager=1” before executing “help”.

Logic: help is the most basic command.

If it flies off the screen it is not much help.
