Here's what I use and it works in both IE and NEtscape

<A HREF="#" onClick="msgWindow=window.open('relative
path/docname.html','helpWindow',toolbar=yes,scrollbars=yes,width=410,height=400,
resizable=yes');if (navigator.appName == 'Netscape'){msgWindow.focus()};return
false" onMouseover="self.status='Help';return true"><img src=/images/help.gif"
width="53" height="21" alt+"Help" border="0"></a>

Obviously, file names and attributes change. I always call helpWindow. It does
mean two windows are open, but not more than 2. I like having a separate window
open because our users can navigate the help system independent of the
application.

Any questions, email me directly, I don't know how relevant this is to the list
as a whole.
