Re: Formats for cross-platform documentation?
You can create Word documents, but not PDFs? There are lots of ways to create PDFs.
Well, I'd be creating Word docs (and whatever else it can export) with OpenOffice 1.0.3 (which doesn't include the PDF output, I believe). Are there other ways on an SGI? We're talking free here.
If I were you, I'd stick with HTML, or reexamine creating PDFs from Word (or Framemaker, if it's available, too.)
Thanks for the help with this. I'm inclined to stick with HTML as well, but my main problem is that I lack a server for processing and such, so I'd be maintaining scores of discrete pages, with all the links between. Is there a method that I've overlooked that can help with this?
