This book itself is a tutorial with exercises. Included on
with the book is a CD-ROM to use in conjunction with those
exercises. On the CD are:
* a trial version of RoboHELP HTML (edition 7.0)
* evaluation version of Paint Shop Pro
* evaluation version of Software Video Camera
* author-created sample Help files
Although that trial version of RoboHELP is the "HTML" type
RoboHELP, the book describes how to use both the Classic
(WinHELP) version and HTML version.
BTW, in case you weren't aware yet, Blue Sky Software
changed name to "ehelp." Here's the location on their site
from where you can download a free 15-Day Limited Version of
RoboHELP for Microsoft HTML Help:
