You can create your own text file containing the noise words to be ignored when a NetHelp Help file is searched. The SearchStopList property allows you to specify the list file to be used.

5.   Click the Make Target button  to build the NetHelp Help file. If the word(s) entered in the Search for text box matches a word specified in your noise word list, it is ignored during the search process.
