Of course the file structure of the XML sources is sort of unimportant.
What really concerns me is how the generated HTML pages in different
languages will be organized. The helpbrowser will have to know about
this and I don't think we ever discussed this so far.

We cannot start to work on this unless there is at least a sample XML
mapping file and perhaps one or two sample help pages. I have been
waiting for these files and perhaps a short writeup explaining the
concept for a few weeks now and thus decided to bring the topic up
again. Rest assured that I remember what has been discussed a few weeks
ago but the dicsussion ended at a point where there wasn't anything but
vague ideas. It's impossible to start an implementation based on this.
