I've spent much time exploring many Windows Help Authoring tools and find them very impressive. However this is where the rubber meets the road. I really don't like the look of a full page Internet Explorer opening up to view a small help topic.
My idea is from a software I purchase last year that had one small windows that opened for every topic. It seemed to be a simple html file loaded into a richtextbox with hyperlinks for each help catagory. So no matter where you are in the program the help windows would open precisely to the correct catagory. I never need to search an index for help. It seemed to know what I was looking at and opened accordingly.
I would like to open Internet Explorer with a smaller popup look and a simple hyperlinked htm help file.
Load a richTextbox on a seperate form and load it and hyperlink the simple htm file accouding so when the form opens the
correct catagory reads appropriately.
