Sandra Eady asks
How does the length of Context IDs affect performance of
a help system?
I have not seen any affect on performance at all. Our context IDs (as I recall)
were anywhere from 10 to 20 characters. I doubt they would have an impact,
because the help compiler is turning them into internal addresses anyway.
