Subject:WebHelp and large Web site indexes From:"Huerster, Robert" <huerro -at- consumer -dot- org> To:"'techwr-l -at- lists -dot- raycomm -dot- com'" <techwr-l -at- lists -dot- raycomm -dot- com> Date:Wed, 19 Jul 2000 11:01:08 -0400
I am considering using WebHelp to create an index to a large Web site that
will be updated and modified on a regular basis. The site contains an online
version of a magazine, including hundreds of articles that will be
searchable through the index. Due to the broad scope of content on the
site, the index will probably be longer and more complex than most help
indexes created with WebHelp. I would like to hear from anyone who has
tackled a similar project using WebHelp. One issue of concern is download
time for users accessing the Web through modems. Any opinions on this issue?
Thanks. Bob Huerster, Research Librarian, Indexer, and Thesaurus Editor.
