After all the great changes you suggested, I did have the help icons in the "panel" folder. It did not display the help icon. Just on a lark, I decided to put the folder under the "gauges" folder. Only then did it display the icon.
Seems weird because I had seen other gauges under the "panel" folder and they did work. That's why I thought the help icons would work from there.
Anyway, thanks again for your help.
