Hey, I'm working on a project where there are two different pieces of
software. One is a GUI and the company wants to use WinHelp, the second
program, after you launch the GUI is browser-based. They want a url
designated for the browser-based software.

I want to use HTML Help for everything, but the engineers are trying to tell
me that it would be HARDER to code HTML Help in to the GUI then doing

I feel the product needs consistency, and I also feel directing a user to a
url without an index seems ludicrous.

Does anyone know anything about the differences in coding HTML Help and
WinHelp to a GUI? The other GUI's I've worked on used HTML Help and it
wasn't an issue.

I feel like I'm talking in circles when I attempt to explain this stuff to
the developers.
