Use WordHelp ( in conjunction with MS Word to create
cross-platform help.

Or, use PDF. PDF is viewable in the same way HTML is.

As for converting PDFs, PDF is a destination, not a path. That is, the
best workflow is to use Word DOCs as your source and deliver to HTML and
PDF from there, and not use PDF as a source.

Can anyone suggest a way around this? Ideally, we'd like to keep sources
in word
and pdf for print, but be able to put them online for users to view. I
know that
you can link to a doc or pdf file and have the user download it, but we
like it to be viewable not downloadable. I tried searching for this in
archives but came up with very little to go on. Also, does anyone know
RoboHTML can convert pdfs?

Or perhaps someone can suggest a different approach?
