If you understand enough about writing HTML
without a tool, then writing your help as
WebHelp with embeded jsp tags could be a
real benifit. It is indeed free of
client-side issues, and can be made
context-sensitive via the embeded jsp
tags. The developers may have to write
some servletts or extend the existing ones
though to support the type of information
you'd want to use. But perhaps I'm going
way beyond answering your question here.
IMHO WebHelp is a much better answer than
JavaHelp and I can't see any reason to
use JavaHelp over WebHelp, especially if
you can tap into jsp portion from within
your html files.
