I need to create single-source help that will work well (and look good) on
both Unix and Windows operating systems. The help will be based on
FrameMaker files which I convert to HTML using WebWorks 6.05.
Preferably, the help should meet the following criteria:

-- Have search capabilities
-- Have an index
-- Have a table of contents
-- Preferably compile into one executable file

I've experimented with WebWorks Help and Java Help. So far, the Java Help
has not compiled properly (apparently I'm missing the jhindexer, which I
can't for the life of me find). WebWorks Help compiles into a cab and jar
file, which do nothing when I double-click them (they're supposed to execute
the help).

Any ideas as to what I'm doing wrong?
Any opinions as to which WebWorks template is better, Java Help or WebWorks
Any other viable options that meet my criteria?
