Fellow keyboard artistes:

Have any of you gone down the path of single-sourcing FrameMaker documents
to produce Win HTML Help, generic Web pages, etc?

Specifically, what tools would you recommend?

-- mif2go
-- HTML Transit ($US5000 per seat = $AU10000; whewee!)
-- Quadralay Webworks Publisher

How did you accommodate the terse topic-to-a-small-page style of on-line
help with the more discursive style for printed books? How did you design
the book pages so that the output has appropriate navigation: Next,
Previous, Back, Forward, To Contents, To Index, Help/Web Home, etc.

Our bright-eyed team of eager writers awaits your wisdom.
