Graphics within Help Topics

Graphics representing See Also, Requirements, and Language Filter options appear in the header above the title of a topic. When you select these graphics, a pop-up window provides links to other topics, requirements, information for language elements, or topic-specific language filter options, respectively. Topics generally contain one or two of these graphics, although some might not have any.
