Adding a help menu option

Does anyone know if it is possible to add an option to Winrunners
help menu which can link to our own function library help files via
an appropriate url ?

If this is possible I'd love to hear about it also
Currently we are working with a decompiled TSL.HLP file (RoboHelp can decompile it easily). We then add links to our own HTML documentation (generated from function headers, along with with a function generator script and reserved_words.ini) and index them so they work with F1 in the editor. We then recompile TSL.HLP with Help Workshop (free with VC++, and available on microsoft.com if you can find it) and use an init script to move all these files to their proper locations on WinRunner startup.
It's quite a long way to go for nice F1 help, and the way we did it required quite a few different tools to get the job done (JScript, Office Automation, Help Workshop, RoboHelp, Perl, HTML, CSS, and some experimenting with TCL and XML/XSL that didn't work out), but it's definitely worth it now that it's working
