Marc, I'm not getting it.

I moved both help button and helpscreen MC to the top layer. My help
screen is a 2-frame MC: blank on frame 1, content on frame 2.

I named the helpscreen MC instance. I gave the help button a TellTarget
calling my helpscreen MC and the nested action GoTo frame2. This ought to
take me to frame 2 of my helpscreen MC, shouldn't it? And since it's on
the top layer, it ought to obscure everything underneath it, no?

The bugger just isn't working. Let me know if the process I've described
is wrong.
