Joanne,

I think that WebWorks Publisher works well. I am a reseller and trainer, but
also use it regularly for my clients.

If you're going to convert your FM content regularly (for new releases and
updates; not just a one-time thing), buying the Pro version is really the
best bet. The standard edition that comes with FM is missing many a
capabilities, including creating new styles to meet your needs.

You can also easily generate a single, merged help for multiple FM books
with both the 2003 version and the newest version (ePublisher Pro).

We're facing the same decision (how to best convert FM to HTML) and would
also like to hear suggestions and comments. I've used the purchased WebWorks
before with good results, but at my new company have to justify the purchase
of it, or use the WebWorks that comes with Frame 7, or use something else.
There needs to be a good main start page for a multiple book set, which the
"free" WebWorks says it provides but I haven't been able to get working.

I used to create HTML pages from Frame very frequently (at least from 6
years ago) simply by saving to HTML as well (after importing a FM template
appropriate for the online files).

I'm not sure if that's what you mean by 'control/access the code".

Do you need to change the output filenames to concure with the developers?
Because our developers wrote a simple program to convert the filenames
(after they found it in the generated HTML text)

If you want to change info in the HTML code, i.e. change heading sizes and
page breaks, control the Cross Ref formats, etc, that is done on the FM ref
pages in the HTML mappings page.

One thing you can't do, is create a searchable INDEX and TOC to collate all
your HTML pages.
For that you would have to use either WebWorks or MIF2GO.

Curently, our team must decide to use either of the tools.
I've been evaluating WebWorks ePublisher Pro and am very pleased by its ease
of use. Unfortunately, they don't seem to have a complete set of Manuals
yet, and are continually fixing bugs.

I would like to hear from you'all about the advantages of either MIF2GO or
Webworks over the other (please disregard pricing for now) if anyone has
experience with both.

Thanks a bunch,
Orly.
