With WebHelp output, can we link directly to a topic and still provide the full navigation/WebHelp interface?

What's the proper way to build the URL? 

Pardon me if this was discussed elsewhere. 

Thanks,
Michael

Hi Michael,

To see the link format, just navigate to the section in your WebHelp you want to link to, and copy the link from the address bar. For example:

http://na.justsystems.com/webhelp/en/xmetalauthor/enterprise/6.0/XMEE.html#Supported%20display%20formats

This link takes you to XMetaL Author Enterprise 6.0 User's Guide > Authoring structured content > Inserting elements > Images > Supported display formats

The "format" is just the URI of the WebHelp page + "#" + URI encoding of the title of the topic.

HTH,
