I wanted to make it look nicer than the windows help engine. The idea was to have a framed HTML page with the search engine part in the left and the help file that has been selected in the right. If you've used flash or dreamweaver before then that's the type of look I'm going for. It just looks good and allows me to put in some nice animated flash sequences. Thanks for the help though.
