Ah, thanks, that did the trick, I have a left pane now.

As for getting my help file registered so that it appears in yelp's
menu, I haven't yet succeeded.  I find that if I specify

<subject category="GNOME|Applications|Accessories"/>

in my .omf file (which is not right for my app, but is quoted from
gedit-C.omf) and do scrollkeeper-rebuilddb, then my app appears under
GNOME/Applications/Accessories.  But if I specify

<subject category="GNOME|Applications|Other"/>

and rebuild the db, the help doesn't appear.  No "Other" category is
created under GNOME/Applications in the yelp menus.
