Hey all you RoboHelp gurus:
(Apologies for multiple posts...)

I have a large WebHelp project, and need to produce a subset of it with
the fewest number of files possible. This is for a series of reports that
are automatically generated in HTML; each report will link to its own help
topic (a single html page for each report).

I successfully created a WebHelp version of the subset files, but the
resulting package contained almost 700k of Javascript baggage files. I
turned off all the options for DHTML & Java output, requesting only
straight HTML, and still ended up with all the baggage. So I turned off
the TOC, search, index, glossary, and everything else. But I still get all
the baggage. It results in over 1MB of help compared to 200K of reports.

So, is there a way to produce straight HTML from RoboHelp? I can't even
cut/paste into other HTML editors without major surgery. Any ideas?

RoboHelp doesn't support straight, standards-compliant HTML as an output format. You'll be better off with an HTML editor like Dreamweaver for the requirements you describe.
