I've decided to give HTML Help Workshop another look and see if I've
gotten any smarter since the last time I tried it. ; ) The resounding
silence to my initial post and to my response to Michele's post is
hinting to me that maybe I should just take another look. It's not
rocket science, after all. I just remember giving up in frustration --
and that was when I was trying to learn it just for my edification and
not for a specific project.

By the way, as long as I have your ear (if, in fact, anyone's reading
this), I have another thing I'd like some feedback on.

My new client and I have agreed (and will sign a contract confirming
it), that we will agree on a time frame and cost of individual legs of
the whole project. My guess is that those subagreements should also be
in writing and signed. Is that correct? Or are verbal agreements all
right? I've met with the client and it seems as if we can deal with one
another just as in any other relationship of trust. Should I be worried
about eventualities that I cannot foresee now and get agreement as to
cost in writing?

The reason I couldn't give him a specific period of time in which I
would document the software is that I have not seen the full extent of
it yet.

Thanks for your help.
