    What are the advantages of using Map IDs?


      I am trying to find out the advantages for using map ids as opposed to just using the file names for the topics, but I couldn't find this information in the RH7 Help or the forums. Can you please list the advantages and disadvantages.

      Also, I am describing how I wish to implement the context sensitive help feature for my application and you can tell me which approach is better. We make an application that is packaged within a Java IDE. We want to launch context sensitive help topics from the wizards and cheat sheets. Now, this context sensitive help can be either be installed on the local machine or network (file:// protocol) or available on our portal (https:// protocol). We do have the infrastructure in place to let the user decide whether he/she wants to access the local help topic or the one over the internet. Will map ids work for both the scenarios?
