Hi, I've never worked with setting up an Online Help system. I know how to write in raw html/sgml, but that's about the extent of my experience with Online Help. I'm familiar with single-source authoring (using Epic) to create customized documentation, but have NO experience designing a help system I currently edit existing context-sensitive online help. I don't use an Online Help application (JavaHelp or RoboHelp). I simply have some hooks in the code that call some html files (nothing sophisticated).
I'd like to use the content that I produce in manuals to produce online help topics. If this means that the Online Help can no longer be context sensitive without a lot of infrastrucuture, then so be it (although a hybird would be ideal). My company is okay with dumping the manual into a clean collection of individual procedures (modules) if the design provides a search box. What tool will take my Frame xml output and generate a pretty look-and-feel for online help? I like MS Word's Online Help. Thank yoiu, -- Angela Akridge angela.akridge at gmail.com 408/393-9249 (cell)
