We develop help for Java applications, and we use WebWorks. This is
largely because we single-source the content from FrameMaker. We use
Webwork's fancy "WebHelp" format that uses either JavaScript or a Java
applet to display the contents/index/search pane. It's worked out pretty
well for us--it's a bit slow to launch, but hey, Java applications are
rarely speedy in the first place. Thanks. DB.
