Just a point of historical clarification -- Doc-To-Help pre-dated RoboHelp
by a month, and was the initial "kick-start" to the Help authoring business.
Through the first few WexTech releases, we were easily the market leader.

IMHBNEUBO (in my humble, but not entirely unbiased opinion) ComponentOne's
latest release of Doc-To-Help 2005 takes the product a long way towards
recapturing that market share. Well worth evaluating.

tools. I mean, thought it sort of kick-started the genre, RoboHelp did not
exist in a vacuuum, there were other tools, several were even
*better,* though RoboHelp enjoyed a loyal following.

Consider, ePublisher Pro (WebWorks Publisher), Author-It, FAR, Doc-To-Help,
and others.

Flare is now, what, beta? Madcap is a brand new company. At some point, it
seems they'll have a version 1 product. You can wait for Flare because
RoboHelp isn't going to stop working at noon today.
Certainly, Flare has captured the imagination and seems to have a dedicated
and skilled set of folks behind it. But, you don't have to wait for Flare,
mature help-authoring tools are already out there.
