You didn't mention which version of the Mac OS your audience will be
using, 9.x or X (ten). If it is 9.x, you can download the Apple Help 1.2
SDK from Apple Help is very
simple to create, it is basically HTML 3.2, however Apple doesn't
support the full standard. For example, 3.2 supports CSS, but Apple help
will never render it. The other suggestion is to join the Apple Help
mailing list, there is a link to the list at the bottom of the page. It
isn't a very active list, maybe 2 emails a week, but it is a great
resource. Hope this gets you started.

Hi all!

First, apologies for the cross-postings.

I need to figure out how to develop compiled help for the Mac
environment. Is there a Mac HAT that anyone knows of? Has anyone else
out there gone through this before? Feel free to contact me off-list if
you'd like.

I'm not sure how often this comes up, but for the few times people run
into it, the answers I get may be useful. I'll post the summary.

Thanks much!
Leslie Johnson
