If you're supporting Java aps, compiled help may not be the way to go
because I would think you'd want to preserve the platform independence
of Java.... just a thought.
I'm generating OmniHelp from FM files using MIF2Go to support Java
aps, and the procedure is basically the same -- you can generate
mapping files as required and the coder needs to invoke either the
actual destination URL or go through the mapping table.
Directions for implementing are included in the eval package on the
www.omsys.com www site.
