For example, if I wrote he thing in FrameMaker and used WebWorks Publisher
to make the CHM, I'd have to create a new set of mappings, based on my CHM
mappings, and then push a few buttons . . .. It's probably the case that
other HATs can do this as simply . . ..
However, unless you are writing for 16-bit Windows, CHM should be no
problem. Time for the s/w engineer to earn his pay ;?P

Just as I've finished the project from hell, my software engineer
has realized that he can't use a .chm file and needs a .hlp file!!!
Soooo, is there anyway to convert a .chm help file back down to
.hlp? If no, is there an easy way to create a .hlp file using the htm files
or converting them to rtf?
I'm completely lost!
thanks for your help as always.
