Devon, there are no serious navigation problems arising. I am creating an
online help which gets launched from my C++ application. I don't want the
user to be able to navigate anywhere but through the help. This is strictly
for INTRANET use.
Also, you asked...
"Has anyone tried opening a new windows and closing the window(s) 
behind the new one..."
If you want to close the window behind the new one, you cannot go back to it
after it is closed. Maybe I just don't understand what you are trying to do.
