/boot/beos/documentation/CVT/HTML/Be Book    
 is simply a link to 
/boot/beos/documentation/Be\ Book 

I have no idea why.  (*CodeVarriorTocumentation? ö)

The BeBook is part of the dev tools, which was a separate download.
Neither of R5 PE and Pro included the dev tools by default.
(this might be a good thing to spell out in an intro to coding for BeOS

You should also have 
/boot/beos/documentation/Doc\ Bookmarks 
which seems to be the keyword database. (reference)

* BeIDE is the offspring of a Metrowerks product called CodeWarrior, 
a popular dev IDE for Mac back when BeOS was ported to PowerPC.
