Smile Microsoft Office Word like Help Documentation.

-->>Hi to all happy to be @ Wrox I hope I'm well welcomed here as its my 1st post and my 1st time to join here though I'v been reading lot of materials from here hence I'v decided to join, now I was about to document the help file of my applicatiion and I thought "How or what kind of controls will I use to have something like what Microsoft has in a Word application where I can just write the documentation in in such a way user can easily have a reference to a certain topic just by providing the links on the control that has the documentation"...
-->>I tried to prepare the documentation in word application and put some links that allow me to navigate on various topics when it is opened out side the application and it worked fine,but when I just link it to my application and load it!!! an error occur saying unsuported features or something like that...
-->>Now I tried to use a richtext control on the form and then during the load procedures of the form it loads the file as .rtf as I saved it with the same format...
-->>Prety good it loads the file right But I cant or I dont have a clue on how to make it look like word applicatiion help form with just link of topics to help users for quik reference...
-->>Any advice on coontrols that I may use or something needed to do so?
