The HTML Project Header file (*.hhp)
is a text file divided into sections. Each section
is headed by its title that is enclosed in square
brackets. Listing 7.1 shows an example of an
HTML Project Header file, while Figure 7.14
shows what the same file looks like when viewed
in the HTML Help Workshop.

FIGURE 7.14. The HTML Help Workshop with
a full-featured Help project loaded.
The [OPTIONS] section gives general
project information, including the name of the
compiled HTML Help file, the name of the files
for the Contents and Index, the default HTML
topic file contents to display if the Help file
is called without a ContextID, and the language
in which to display prompts and captions. You
can manipulate the project's [OPTIONS] from
within the HTML Help Workshop by clicking the
Change Project Options icon (the topmost Toolbar
button on the vertical toolbar along the left
of the HTML Workshop's main screen) and filling
in the appropriate information in the resulting
Options tabbed dialog box, as shown in Figure
FIGURE 7.15 The HTML Help Workshop's
Options tabbed dialog box.
The other *.hhp file sections (explained more at length under
the sections in this chapter entitled "HTML Help
source files for Extensive Help" and "HTML
Help source files for WhatsThisHelp") include lists of different types of
files that contain the actual Help information to be shown by the system.
