Hello all, I started a new project and they decided that with this release of their much updated sw app. that they want to do online help. I used RoboHelp for many years when it did WinHelp, I used it for one year when it did WebHelp but it didn't support Netscape so I didn't keep using it. I migrated to HTML Help Workshop and haven't done much with help for four or five years.

After a quick Google search I found:
Help Producer
EC Software's Help & Manual 4
Help Scribble

Including MS HTML Help 1.4 and RoboHELP what are opinions out there for me to adequately analyze the online help apps. and offer a solution to my client? They are using Word for most manuals, although they will a release later this year where I think Frame might be a better option b/c the manual will be ~400 pages. I've already pitched Frame for that project and they are open-minded to that. So that is also something to consider.

Thanks! Michele
