Searching help files in office 2003 is an almost completely helpless task.
If you search for one word you *may* get something close. If you are daring
enough to put two or more words together, there is absolutely no telling what
you may come up with or get any idea about what you are actually trying to
find...unless it's a *popular* enough topic (i.e., confusing to a larger
number of users) that the system may bring it up.
How about something radical like "Help Search Tips" or XP or Office XP "Help
Search Tips" that give an idea of how to get something at least a little off
the beaten path and that may not absolutely require you to know the EXACT
NAME for the service or item or other widget for which you are searching.
