Moshe --
Susan G has given you some very good advice.

At my company, (where we code in C++), I have the programmers
generate an .HM file, which gives me all the tags (including many
that help can't call, btw). I then construct the Context-sensitive
Help portion of my help file with the tag as the title, context ID,
and text for the CSH. I can then click on any object and get the tag
that is really being called.
My only interaction w/ the engineers on this afterwards is bug and
bad implemetation reports.

As for getting help on ever menu option, that can be done (IMHO)
through the main help, I don't know of any way to get CSH on a menu
item. (a dialog box *called* from a menu item, yes, but not the menu
item itself.)
