    How to make online help for PHP web application?


    I got an PHP/JS web application and my boss wants me to add an online help in it. Idea is that after click on some "button" it will show some new window with help. There should be some indexing and searching... Simply something like Windows help... Is there any FREE software which allows me to do this? I have absolutely no experience with this, so I donīt know what to download, what is the best and how to implement it. Any tips appreciated

    PHP 4? Eww.

    A help system is as simple as:
    1. Having some kind of help to offer
    2. Making that accessible at some URL
    3. Making a link/button to that URL

    It really depends on what this application is and how it works. Is it third-party or made in house? Is it very Javascript heavy, or just AJAX, or what?
