Hi Joan,

I have been doing this recently and I am using Epic Editor as my tool, it is
XML which you then convert to HTML. It is a easy enough program to use with
a good WYSIWYG editor. It should handle your needs easily enough, whether it
is a small or large project. I have tested it on IE, Opera, Netscape and
Mozilla and it works fine.

You can get more information on the Epic from I have
found the people there very helpful too.

If this isnt what you are after, Have a look at RoboHelp, I have used this a
lot and it too is a great product.

Hi All,

Is anyone creating online help for Netscape, IE, and Opera browsers? And if
yes, what are you using for the help format?

I was looking at using WebWorks Help 3.0; but, WWH3 doesn't work with Opera
5. I might be able to convince development to change the requirements to
Opera 6 but maybe not. (WWH3 seems to work fairly well with Opera 6 in
JavaScript mode and with the Related Topics button disabled).
