Here's what the site said:
"Known Issues Concerning Internet Explorer 7.0
No Context-Sensitive Help
Symptoms: Calling context-sensitive help in WebWorks Help 5.0 output
opens only the first page of the helpset (e.g., index.html) instead of
launching the requested topic page.
Cause: IE7 removes the "query string" from URLs calling documents on the
local file system. So, when you pass a reference like
'index.html?context=Group1&topic=MyTopic', the browser only sees
'index.html.' This does not affect server-based helpsets."
In other words, when you passed the reference, IE7 was stripping part of
the path out...
QUESTION: Was this IE7 issue ever resolved? Anyone else encounter it?
How did you deal with it?
