That is a very interesting question.

Starting with Version 6 the Help page notebooks have their own internal
context and don't interfere with notebooks in the Global` context. So
perhaps it ought to be able to have a notebook set its own context. But I
have no idea how to do this and I hope your question will elicit some useful
responses from WRI or some expert.

Hello everyone,

Is it possible to have more than one notebook active at a time, that  
is, so that the variables of one do not conflict with variables in  
another whose names are the same.  I notice that when I open a  
Mathematica 7 notebook, under the Evaluation menu, the Default Kernel  
is local, the Notebook's Kernel is local, and the Notebook's Default  
Context is global.  Do I need to change anything?
