Hello all

I have a specific query related to online documentation. Searching the
archives under 'HTML', 'context senstitive', 'online documentation' has
provided some answers but my original query remains. It is this:

Is it possible to create context-sensitive online documentation using
HTML? I'm thinking of the user in the GUI application. This user doesn't
understand a task or a GUI screen element so s/he presses a 'Help'
button, or chooses 'Help' from a menu and an HTML-based window opens
automatically providing help on the task or GUI screen element which the
user didn't understand.

Does anyone have experience implementing this type of documentation?
Suggestions/advice will be greatly appreciated.
