This is right on target. Kent, thanks for the links. They are wonderful.
I am a QA manager, but my background is techwriting. I manage the writing
of embedded help. I am always searching for usability information on html
embedded help. Techwriters and developers have opinions on how to format
this. They usually don't consider the person that actually uses the help!
That is my job.

to write embedded html help, I would like to "compare notes", so to speak.
This is new technology and there is not a lot of information on usability.
Thanks in advance for any information sent my way.
