We can all hope that Macromedia, known for tools that create clean HTML, will kill off the terrible psuedo-WYSIWYG editing tools in Robohelp and implement something sensible. Until I first worked with Robohelp, I thought that nothing could screw up HTML as badly as FrontPage... but I was mistaken.

BTW, using Robohelp to open "clean" HTML files created in DreamWeaver automatically adds the "wonderful" Robohelp gunk to the code. Yuck!

I'm hoping now that Macromedia has purchased RoboHelp, they'll introduce a
built-in Dreamweaver interface for editing help files.
