Ann Waterhouse asked:

I just wanted to know if there was anyone out there who creates on-line help
for Unix.

Currently we are using HyperHelp but are thinking of changing. Could we
please tell me what package you are using to create Unix help?


Well, there are lots of ways to deliver Help on UNIX. A standards-based
approach using some combination of HTML, JavaScript, and Java is one
alternative. Authoring tool vendors offer a variety of extensions that will
work on UNIX, including WebHelp from Blue Sky Software, InterHelp from
ForeFront, and WebWorks Help from Quadralay.

What is it you don't like about HyperHelp, and what is it you hope to
achieve with an alternative delivery format?
