Hi Khizran

It's not clear which "RoboFlavor" or version you are using. There are basically two "flavors". RoboHelp for Word and RoboHelp HTML. Both *MIGHT* be capable of producing a loose, uncompiled version of your help system known as WebHelp. This depends on the version and depending on how old the package is, whether you purchased only RoboHelp for Word or RoboHelp HTML or you purchased the complete RoboHelp Office package.

Without more information, I can't be more specific. But if it's a recent version, you can probably produce WebHelp output. This is somewhat "cross-browser" and should be able to be displayed on a Linux system. Note that it may appear slightly differently when displayed in a Linux browser than it will when displayed in Internet Explorer.

Hopefully this helps... Rick :)

I have been working on robohelp creating WinHelp and HTMLHelp for different
softwares but all have been Windows based. I have never worked on/for Linux.
If I have the help contents how can use it on Linux. Can someone please help
me with this or refer a website?
