The answer is, Flash Help, WebHelp, and HTML Help (CHM) can be context

In the first two cases, MM should provide an API (WebHelp API, for
example) that your programmers can use to create the c-s hooks in the

Filename marker).

If that doesn't do it, or developer resources are unavailable, I
recommend LinkIt from (good folks, good
product). You can use this sans programming to set up c-s help.
