Note Navigation and Review using Softcopy Books

      This function provides a mechanism to navigate notes created by
the user.  As the notes are traversed, the topic to which the note
was
originally attached is automatically displayed.  Therefore, the topic
window is in the background and the note window is in the foreground.

      Depicted in the drawing are the buttons used to navigate the
note window.  The Next and Prev buttons are used to traverse the
notes created by the user.  The Next button will locate the next
sequential topic in the book containing a note.  The note will be
presented in the note window, and the associated topic will appear in
the background.  This arrangement will provide the user with an easy
method to review all the notes attached to a BookManager* built book.
The Prev button will traverse the notes in reverse order.
