Context-sensitive Help primer

Carol Johnston writes a concise and helpful overview of how to author context-sensitive Help for Windows, focusing mostly on the technology and implementation techniques. While not difficult, any documentation that needs to be interspersed with an application's source code is often avoided or receives less refinement that it deserves due to the overhead and coordination required. That's a shame, as bringing Help into the primary user interface is by far the most useful technique for providing "just in time" assistance. (Thanks, Gary Conroy)
