Tara Bucheger asks:
Are there any guidelines/rules of thumb as to how many "things" per Help
topic are good practices to follow?

Bill responds:
As many things as you need but not so many that you defeat the point of
putting things there in the first place. I can't get more specific than that
withough scenario and content information made available to me.

"The places I hiked to! - The roads that I rambled
To find the best eggs - that have ever been scrambled!
If you want to get eggs - you can't buy at a store,
You have to do things - never thought of before."
from: "Scrambled Eggs Super!" by Dr. Seuss
