That's not what the ‘help’ function does, so I don't think that's

Moreover, the Python interpreter does not have any notion of where the
HTML documentation is stored, nor how to access it, nor how to present

So no, a Python interactive prompt does not natively have a way to do
what you're asking.

What you may like is to get your programming environment to present the
official Python documentation as part of that environment.

For example, the documentation is rendered to GNU Info format and
available to install from <URL:>,
which makes it immediately available in Info readers, such as the one
native to Emacs.
