Right you are! Webworks 7.0 Standard simply chops up the Framemaker file into 
HTML files at the level you specify (ChapTitle, Heading1, Heading2) and also 
saves all your graphics as .gif files with major color and pixellation problems 
(and also restores all scaled drawings to their original, in some cases 
immense, proportions).

You then load all these files into HTML Help Workshop and manually create a 
TOC, which includes typing in a name for each book and topic (I have only a 
couple hundred HTML files, so this didn't take too long. Not in comparison to 
the project I have coming up, anyway . . . )

Now I  am trying to find out why my Note, Caution, and Warning icon graphics 
have become as big as tablecloths and what I can do about them. 

I see so many things I could make so much better if I had the time and the 
right tools, but alas, it is not to be.

Jeremy, do you really mean it? I would be thrilled. I think I could convince 
them to accept it. I think.
