But, Flare *is* some other tool. <g>

Anyways, c-s help for apps programmed in .NET can be hooked up the
same way as always; it is no more challenging than doing c-s help for
C++, for example. .NET adds filename calls as a way of calling c-s
topics, but you don't need to do that and it's not really complicated,
either; I'm sure your programmers can make it so as a programmer and I
had a test c-s help working in a .NET-programmed application within 30
minutes of our first attempt.
