Can youname a topic one thing and have the heading that appears be
something else? Can you hyperlink to a place inside a topic?
<<<<<

The only thing that must be unique is the context string. Help titles do
not need to be unique. However, you will run into problems if your index
lists several topics that all have the same title. The user will be
confused and angry.

You can use a topic title that displays in the index that is different
from the title that displays in the Help window.

Use a mid-topic jump to jump to a place inside a topic. In RoboHelp 5,
use Tools - Insert Mid-Topic Jump.
