Best: ;-) Check out Mif2Go; at $295, it's about 1/10 the
price of ePP, and 1/3 the price of the TCS. It generates
very clean HTML, XML, DITA, DocBook, and numerous Help
formats (including Eclipse Help and OHJ; more outputs than
any of the other options, in fact). It also produces Word
files that look remarkably like the Frame files from which
they were made, handy for reviewers who only use Word.
The free unlimited demo version is at:
And Mif2Go comes with the best free support in the industry;
who else fixes bugs on the spot (not "in the next version"),
and adds features you ask for overnight? See the history.txt
file there for numerous examples of those enhancements, with
the names of those who asked for them. ;-)
