I have been asked to begin by developing context sensitive help that
will detect and display the project-specific details of a test in
progress. This would not be window- or field- level help, rather it
would dynamically linked to test sequence and the data being collected
and would differ for each installation. This seems like it would be
more of a software feature than an online help feature.

I have little to no experience in developing help systems and this
request has thrown me a bit off course in my progress on this project.
Has anyone ever seen or developed anything like this?

I'd appreciate any suggestions!
