WebWorks has a tool called the Import Utility that will import a RoboHelp
project and convert the content to FM. You then need to apply styles and
break the content into chapters (it all goes into one FM file). I've used it
on some RoboHelp projects, and it worked quite well. All graphics came in
and links were good, but links had to be redone after setting up the
individual chapter files.
