Call Visualforce page from javascript

Is it possible to call a visualforce page with parameters (in a managed package) from Javascript?


I want to add a sidebar component to call my help system.  The component would collect the url of the current page with javascript and then send the url to the visualforce page which would parse the url to determine page context and then call my help file.


Any ideas on how this might be accomplished?




Every Visualforce page has a direct URL that looks like /apex/MyPage.  Try something like that.
