That has about as much to do with your source content as the
temperature in your office or the color of your socks.

Are they using the HTML Help API? Or another API for context-sensitivity?

That's all you need. Just make sure your TopicAlias markers are in the
tight place (I put them in the middle of the headings) and make sure
you are splitting on those heading levels in WWP.

We produce c-s CHMs all the time from FM source using WWP and keep
much of the content in a chapter format, so there are many help topics
per FM file.
