Hi Rick,

Thanks for your reply. I am currently using RoboHelp Office 2002 with both
the flavours ofcourse. I have searched throught internet enough to find out
that WebHelp would be cross-browser/cross-platform to some extent. But if I
use a WebHelp output that would mean I would still have to use Windows to
manage the source, right?

Regards :)

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
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 :)
