I previously wrote this in the general section, but... got no answers, and wanted to add that the GUI we're using is TeleUse. We're in the process of development now, and the other alternative I'm looking at is to use SGML (a DTD) for the manual (but would prefer .pfd).

I will be writing a user's manual that will be put on a server (in .pdf format, divided into sections and indexed). This document also serves as a help file. The users will be operating a Solaris based system with help buttons on windows for various subjects. Is there a way to correlate (link) the subject of that help button to the appropriate subject in the PDF manual?
I.e. If the user brings up a window to configure his radios, but needs assistance, he should be able to click the on-screen help button in that window and get to the required section of the .pdf document.
