TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
What model and version of WebWorks are you using? There are now three
(though given you're using FM, I can eliminate one).
If you're using WWP SE then you're outta luck. It's a quick and dirty
export filter for HTML and XML only. Upgrade to WWP Pro.
If using Pro, consider an online Help format instead of HTML. I believe
the preferred Help format for .Net is MS HTML Help, but any Help system
will work (though you'll probably get funny looks if you ship WinHelp).
The context-sensitive elements for HTML would be the filename and any
named anchor within. So, if you have a file called foo.htm and a named
anchor of <a name="goo"> then your application should call foo.htm#goo.
Else break your HTML files up so there's one topic per file and just
call the filename.
A quick note: You can define your context-sensitive topics by using a
TopicAlias marker in FM for every topic you want to be
context-sensitive, and then map that accordingly in WWP. The
documentation/Help for WWP explains how to do this.
