The programmer with which I'm working is asking about a *standard* menu
option to put under Help in our Windows product. I've checked the
following products and found the following:

Microsoft Word, Outlook, etc: Help >>>Contents & Index
RoboHELP>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Contents & Index
PaintShop Pro>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Help Topics
SHED editor>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Contents
Windows Explorer>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Help Topics
ICQ>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Help Topics
PKZIP>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Index (which opens to the Contents)

He is asking if Help Topics is the new standard. I think it'll be okay,
don't you?
