.Net HelpProvider. Somehow possible to access Context ID of .chm file?

P: n/a
I' currently writing documentation for one of our projects and I need to access the Context ID of a .chm file.
My problem is that the .Net HelpProvider/HelpNavigator does not support access to the Context ID of a .chm file. The reason I need to access the Context ID is that the documention is intended to be written in many different languages. If I could access the context ID, I could assign each topic a unique ID using the documentation tool, regardless of the language the documentation is written in. Then, when the user presses F1, the search is based on the context ID instead of KeyWordIndex, Topic, etc. The way our system works now, is that we have a xml file which contains a mapping table to map between the HelpString and the language selected by the user. We would like to somehow associate the HelpString twith the Context ID in the .chm-file. Can this be done? Like the same way Help worked in VB6...?
