Actually, there's a much better way than RH. Save your file out of Word as a
standard RTF, *making sure* to tag every heading and paragraph with a good
style. This doesn't work (and neither does any other advanced single source
method) if everything you write in Word is tagged "normal". Then pull the
RTF up into ForeHelp. Voila. Full control, much fuller than RH, WYSIWYG
environment, endless options. And Word is out of the loop, replaced by a
database-centric application that has wonderful support from ForeFront.
Check it out at Everybody I know who has tried ForeHelp loves
it. For simple single source, it's great.
