Which Help: Combined Help or MSDN Library?

Is there a document that explains the difference between the
Visual Studio .NET 2003 Combined Help Collection and the
MSDN Library for Visual Studio .NET 2003 or does someone
have comments describing the benefits of either or the other?

Hi

In short
MSDN Library consists of help in various other Microsft technologies like
VISIO, SQLXML, Windows CE, Mappoint etc.

In the Visual Studio Documentation you can get information regarding VS.NET
IDE, .NET Framework, various languages and tools used in .NET Framework etc

The 'combined' collection is the default configuration implying that
searches of the combined collection would also include searching
through the MSDN Library which seems to only contain magazine
articles. Confirm?

I suppose the important issues are that changing between the two
requires closing and restarting VS.NET.

Do you have any comments that could help explain how which
help selection would function when using F1 when in the IDE or
when using Dynamic Help?

I haven't found a 'help on help' that explains these issues.
