There's no way to do this in Win 3.x help. For Win 95 (and greater)
help, alter the topic ID (the # footnote) as follows:

#TOPIC_ID > windowname

This forces TOPIC_ID to open in <windowname> whenever it's accessed.
Using the greater than symbol in the cnt file only forces the topic
into the specified window when it's accessed from the cnt window,
not when it's accessed from another topic or from the search/index

You may need quotes around the window name. It's been a long time
since I've done a help file so I forget.
