Subject:HTML help and multi-tasking From:Julie Shannon <vashon_shannon -at- yahoo -dot- com> To:"TECHWR-L" <techwr-l -at- lists -dot- raycomm -dot- com> Date:Sat, 6 Jan 2001 18:50:48 -0800 (PST)
>Several times lately I have clicked on the help menu
of an application (some not even Internet-related
applications) to find my browser suddenly leaving what
I was doing and opening HTML help.
I certainly don't want to create documentation that is
going to anger readers as soon as it opens.<
If I am not mistaken, there is a way to "open a new
window" when calling an HTML file, is there not?
Would this be useful? Or would it lead to multiple
instances of Help being open on a desktop? Hmmmm....
