Frame + WebWorks Publisher most emphatically does not produce results like
Doc2Help. WWP is far less restrictive and far more customizable (through
WWP's internal macro language and the use of regular expressions).

I use FrameMaker, RoboHELP, and WebWorks Publisher on a regular basis.
They'are all good tools. However, given a set of FrameMaker documents, I can
produce almost any result that I want direct from FrameMaker through
WebWorks Publisher--HTML, WinHelp, HTML Help, JavaHelp, XML, etc. ad.
infinitum. There is no need to import the FrameMaker content into RoboHELP.
