I'm on the digest, so if this has been answered already, I'm sorry for the additional post :)

In WinHelp you set the property of the line of text to "Keep with next". In many of the help
authoring tools, if you are creating WinHelp or HTMLHelp (compiled CHMs), this is handled
auto-magically if you use the correct paragraph style or topic type.
