Redundancy note: also posted to HATT, minus NS question

Has anyone developed, or even investigated, a solution for the fact
that full-text search is not available when generating compliant
WebHelp. Is anyone delivering this output as is, i.e. with the "Search"
that is basically a keyword index without the capability to actually
search on a string.
Also, need to know if anyone has developed a workaround
for the fact that 508 complaint output is not supported in Netscape.
I'd be appreciative of any information (general tips/gotchas) regarding the

use of the RoboHelp 508 compliant option, or alternative tools being used
to satisfy the requirements of accessibility for Help. Thanks.
