Our programmers seem to have a problem coming up with new context numbers
to use with their help buttons, and therefore often call the help system
from different dialog boxes with the same number. We came up with a
solution in which we create a "branch topic," that lists the dialog boxes
that share the same number, with links to the topics for those dialog
boxes. Can anyone else think of a more elegant solution? Documentation
always gets set to "low priority" in our bug reporting system.
