HelpAltPrefix Element

Description

Defines prefixes other than IDH_ for mapped topic IDs. A prefix other than IDH_ generates errors as you compile your help file — unless you specify that prefix here.

The HelpAltPrefix element corresponds to the "Instead of IDH_, check these prefixes" field on the Linking sub tab, on the Windows Help tab of the Book object.
