Navigation Pane in HTML Help
By default, the navigation pane provides the following tabs, which you can include or exclude from your help output through HTML Help Workshop:
Contents tab
Displays the table of contents in the form of a expand/collapse tree view. The table of contents includes all paragraph styles that you assigned a TOC level in Style Designer. When the user selects an entry in the Contents tab, the information from that topic is displayed in the topic pane. You can customize the icons used for specific topics within the table of contents.
Index tab
Displays an alphabetical list of keywords associated with topics in the source documents. Writers use their source document authoring tool to create standard index markers or field codes that define these keywords in their source documents.
Search tab
Provides a powerful full-text search feature with several advanced search options. The user can type a search string and then select Display to view a list of topics that contain the word or phrase specified.
Favorites tab
Displays a list of topics in the help that the user has added to his or her personal list of favorites. This tab allows users to bookmark help topics they often use or want to quickly find in the future. When the user selects a topic on this tab, the information from that topic is displayed in the topic pane.
