Hi there,
I'm trying to figure out what is the best way to create help on a mobile
device (used for field services). The mobile's OS is Windows CE.

Here are the facts:
- I need to consider the limitations of memory size on the device +
the size of the screen.
- I have used Robohelp extensively for generating different online
outputs: Java, html and webhelp (but never on Windows CE) and would like
to use it again in this project specially that I'm going to use it to
create the help on the server side. I read somewhere that Robohelp
doesn't support Window CE, but can I use it to generate web help and
somehow hook it to the app loaded onto the device?

- What kind of questions should I be asking our techies (since they
will be the ones hooking it up to the app)to verify whether or not I can
used webhelp.

Has anyone had this experience before? Any recommendations?
