I wrote a series of articles on online help back in the mid-90s
and have them posted on my web site at:

http://pw1.netcom.com/~gscale/susanwg/cmindware/article1.htm

There may be something there that will help you. If you have any specific
questions, don't hesitate to contact me offline; but please remember that
I'm ever so rusty! ;-)

Also, Jared Spool did a lot of research on online info and help back
then. There's one paper on his web site, in particular, that should
help. See:

HTH!
