Applying contextual help themes

The MindTouch contextual help dialog was built with flexibility in mind. Users can choose to modify the look and feel of their contextual help dialog through a combination of themes and CSS styles:

<a class="F1" href="#">Help</a>
<script type="text/javascript">
    F1 = {
        host: ''
        stylesheet: 'new-styles.css',
        stylesheetIE8: 'ie8.css',
        stylesheetIE7: 'ie7.css',
        text: {
            back: '< Back',
            forward: 'Forward >',
            home: 'Back to Home',
            open: 'Open new article',
            search: 'Search Now',
            hint: 'Enter search term'
<script src=""></script>
