We use context sensitive help with our .CHMs and our browser based
web-help - all generated from RoboHelp X5.

Our developer could work it all out from the help files supplied by
RoboHelp (look up CSH - context sensitive help) - these tell you about
the folder of supplied routines in "Program Files\RoboHelp\CSH API",
that pretty much does all the work. He had to add a "help id" to the
application pages (.ASP and XML files), and had a careful look at the
web help that I generated. Now, all I have to do is assign the mapids
that are generated from the helpIDS as per usual. The CSH API folder has
scripts for java, but I have not looked at them.

Comments I got back from the developerwere along the lines "it's easy -
all explained in the help file".

Hope this helps.
