Summary0010900: Keyword Help (Ctrl F1) with multiple entries in index
DescriptionWindows IDE 1.0.10 with compiler 2.2.0 and the HTML index built from (didn't notice the .gz file :-)

"close" has four entries in the index and I understand that Ctrl F1 will always bring up the 1st entry if there is more than one.

I suggest that if there is more than one entry you should bring up the index with the focus on the 1st entry. This makes the user immediately aware of the existence of multiple entries.

This is a general problem also when CHM help is used. I quickly looked into it, but the problem is that the generic helpsystem of the IDE/FV doesn't provide for this.

Changing the generic codes interface causes problems what to do with the many ancient helpformats. (probably most haven't been tested since before 2003 or so)

Also the keywords should be linked to article headers. (so that if you look up "property" you get to choose between "procedural property" and "property in a class" and maybe a bit about published properties. Now you would get 3 times "property" to choose from.
