Thanks for the advice. I did try your technique but I am still having some issues.
Here is my TOC..
...Topic 2 (Redirect Page)
I also added the Redirect Page to the Browse Sequence.
When the user clicks the Topic 2 from the Redirect Page, Topic 2 displays as required. However, in the TOC the highlighted topic is Topic 2 located under Book 1. If the user, who should be in Book 3, clicks the back navigation button, they are taken back to Topic 1 in Book 1.
So there is now an even bigger navigation issue.
What do you think?
The trick to all this is to never directly link from the TOC to the desired topic. Let's assume the TOC should have a topic appearing in two different places. In order to make this work, you link from two different redirect pages.
Now if you generate WebHelp, I see where there could be an issue, because the browse sequence can only link from one topic to another. In other words, a topic can only have a single link to and a single link from it. So in this case, the redirect trick would fail. However, another trick comes to mind that may work. Instead of a Redirect page, you could have two different pages that instead of redirecting, contained an Inline Frame (IFRAME) that simply displayed the contents of the desired page. Basically, the pages containing the IFRAME would link properly and provide the desired effect.
