People don't like to click and look.

I'd have it in the Help, or possibly if you have a SW app, an additional option in the Help menu.

I'd use drop-down text, and have everything on one page, perhaps categorized so the reader can quickly locate the problem area and then look at the items for that topic area.

Drop-down text lets you have everything in an organized manner on a page, but it is navigateable.

Subject: If you were making a FAQ...

a) Would you include it in online help (WebHelp) if that was the primary documentation for your product?

b) If yes, then would you make it one big FAQ topic/page, or would you make each Q and A a separate topic/page under a FAQ "book" in the ToC?
