I am developing online help for an application being developed in Websphere
Portal Server. I am using RoboHelp to create WebHelp (a bunch of loose HTML
files). The developers are now telling me that they can't figure out how to
link to my help. They're saying that Websphere Portal Server can't simply
link to an HTML file. It has to render the HTML on its own through JSP or
somesuch. I asked if JavaHelp would be a solution and they said that
wouldn't work either..."what they need is HTML fragments, everything
between the (body) tags. "
Anyone doing this or have any knowledge about it?
I can't get messages posted to the list, so please reply directly to me.
Thanks very much,

Once upon a time...
... it was required that if a person claimed to be a web developer, the "Swiss Army Chain Saw of the Internet", Perl, would be in their tool box.
It would be a trivial task to write a Perl script to read your HTML files, extract the info between the body tags, and write it to another file.
But then again, perhaps I am dating myself (again).
