Dear All,

Thanks for all the input, it confirms my belief that Dreamweaver is certainly a tool to look at. I've been struggling for years with Winhelp and Word and I am ready for something new...

Many people mentioned the problem of creating a TOC and an index and various tools were mentioned, however nobody seems to have had a look at the free extensions. There are extensions which will allow you to create both on the Macromedia web site. I've downloaded both, but haven't had a chance to try them out yet, but I will certainly give them a go, before I buy anything off the shelf.

I wasn't able to find out anything about how to create context-sensitive help using Dreamweaver anywhere (yet), but I presume that you just have to link to individual topics (.HTM) rather than to a topic in a help file. I am sure there is a way, since RoboHelp (from what I read) uses or is able to use Dreamweaver and that creates context-sensitive help. Also, if you look at the Macromedia help files for all the various programs, they all have context-sensitive help, too. Any hints would be helpful!

As to the helpweavers mailing list... it doesn't seem to be a very busy mailing list? I've subscribed to it yesterday and haven't had one single email...
