Does anyone have any good writing examples of context sensitive help (CSH)?

Currently my product's CSH links to topics within our help
system, but a writing friend at another company told me that his CSH is a
completely separate help system from his main online help. It basically
explains what can be done on a particular screen and gives definitions for fields the screen contains. It also includes links to corresponding topics in the main
online help. Any thoughts?
