Hi all

I'm considering options for single-sourcing our manuals and help files.
Currently, our manuals are in Frame and we maintain help files with
ForeHelp. I'm seriously considering Quadralay's WebWorks Professional
Edition 6.0, but I have some questions. As you folks have been so helpful in
the past, I wanted your input.

Is there still a bug associated with shipping context sensitive help files
that are viewed locally? Since I'd need to do this, could anyone let me know
how awkward the work-around is and if a fix has been issued.

Are the help files slow. Any performance issues?

How hard is WebWorks to learn if you've got a reasonable HTML/ JavaScript
background? What might be a reasonable amount of time to schedule in order
to shift FrameMaker templates to export more happily and to create/tweak
help templates in WebWorks?

Any general comments from WebWorks users and people who've transitioned to
that mythical single-sourcing land would also be appreciated.
