Hi Laura,

Not being familiar with Hyperhelp, all I can offer is what I would do if I were in your situation.

I'd use DreamWeaver or some other HTML authoring tool to create my help systems on Windows and then use a UNIX browser to display the results.

This might be a big conversion effort from .hlp files to .htm files, but it looks like you're thinking of converting anyway.

My 2¢,

Could anyone suggest an alternative to Hyperhelp,
