I am attempting to display a field-level help window that also
displays the TOC. Right now, the user can click field level help, view
the popup help in a window, and then click "Show" to view the TOC.
However, the user cannot click Back.

The Business users have requested that the field-level help (which
displays through javascript and a MAP ID) display the topic in the
rightnav and the TOC in the leftnav.

You haven't mentioned which HAT, so I'm assuming RH X5.

the "Help" link which does display the topic and TOC is called using:

[a href="javascript:RH_ShowHelp(0,'WebHelp/default.htm>WithNavPane',
HH_HELP_CONTEXT, 5)"]Help[/a]

This assumes that the window layout you have defined for the topic+TOC
is called "WithNavPane"; let's say the other is called "NoNavPane".

I'm guessing that you (or the developers) need to change all the
field-level calls to RH_ShowHelp to pass the second parameter as
'WebHelp/default.htm>WithNavPane' instead of
'WebHelp/default.htm>NoNavPane' which it is at present (remember my
assumption just above this).
