Developing WinHelp content in FrameMaker

Greetings, Urthlings:

I have seen often enough in various lists that FrameMaker can be used to
develop content which is then saved to an RTF file and compiled with the MS
Help Workshop compiler.  Does anybody have a cheat sheet for this?

I assume that the appropriate para attributes in FrameMaker map to
equivalents in Word to trigger the appropriate compiler behaviour, e.g.:

Start new topic			Top of Page para attr		PageBreak
Non-scrolling 'frame'	Keep With Next para attr	Keep With Next para
Jump to new topic			Double Underline attr
Double Underline attr
Pop-up gloss term			Single Underline attr
Single Underline attr
Topic ID						# footnote
# footnote
Index entries				K footnote
K footnote
etc., etc.

What I can't figure out is the FM equivalent of the Hidden text char attr
which allows the compiler to identify the actual link.  The clues is out
there ... I hope.  All hints and cheat sheets accepted with sobbing
