Dans Network Help needs the help file to be structured in a specific way.
Each help topic needs to be declared with its label, enclosed in square brackets. You then need to declare the end of the help topic with a single hash mark (#) on the next line down.
The following snippet shows part of a help file.
The help file needs to be saved as plain text, as 'HELP.TXT' and reside in the same directory as 'HELP.EXE'.

[Saving a file]
To save a file click 'File' from the menu bar, then click 'Save as...'.
You can then specify a directory and file name of your choice.
Finally, click 'Save'.
[Closing the program]
Click 'File' from the menu bar, then click 'Exit'.
Any text that is not contained within a topic will not be used by Help, so you can add information about the author of the help file, and change dates etc.
