Plain HTML is a perfectly viable medium for quite useful help systems. We've developed them for (and with) several of our clients. As for the search and index features:

* Search engines are available in many price ranges (beginning

* "Rolling your own" index would be a much more difficult task
if it weren't for HTML Indexer. :)

A V A I L A B L E N O W !

HTML Indexer 3, still the easiest way to create and maintain real
back-of-the-book indexes for web sites and other HTML documents.

Now including options for HTML Help and JavaHelp indexes, too!
