Here's the official word from Blue Sky, for anyone else who has to work with
the What's This? tool. The unique ID does not have to be unique at the system
level, just at the dialog box level. So, for example, your developers can label
all group boxes "ID_GROUP_BOX", as long as two group boxes don't appear within
a single dialog box. If anyone has any detailed questions, e-mail me, because I
think I understand this now. :)

Controls are considered linked for What's This Help purposes in an MFC
application when one control has the Id IDC_STATIC (or an id equal to
-1). That control will be linked to the next control in the Tab Order
that has a Tab Stop set. If you want each control on the Dialog to be
independent, give the control an id other than IDC_STATIC..
