Happy Friday, Whirlers!

Here's a how-de-do*: I keep getting bugs from my QA department because our
web help doesn't let someone open a help topic for a specific dialog box.
(It's fine to open help topics for specific pages of our web applications,
but not for dialogs opened from those web pages.

As I understand it, however, web help plain and simple cannot do this (open
help at the dialog level). Is this true? Am I wrong? Is there a
specification where this is spelled out? I'd appreciate any pointers you
have. It would help me get QA off my back! (They've got plenty of other
reasons to jump on me, anyway. :)
