Popup Winhelp Demo
==============
This scipt/DSU helps you to use winhelp popups on your dialog
to offer help to your user.

It has several advantages over Tool Tips built into VDS including:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.Larger size allowing more information to be provided.
2.You can use custom fonts/colors/even images in the popup.
3.Hyperlinks can be provided.
4.Link to another topic if user wants more help.
5.Advanced users can take full benefit of Winhelp macros.

Disadvantages:
-----------------
1.More difficult to implement than a tooltip.
2.Need to distribute the popup Help file along with your app.
3.A little Inferior to Balloon tips in appearance/function.
4.Cannot be implemented on dialog elements for which no mouseover
style is available.

All the functions are wrapped into a DSU to make this difficult
area relatively easy.
