First, I recommend checking into the Apple Developer site, they have
lots of choice tidbits of information, usually nicely packaged in
PDFs. You can get to the ADC site and register here:

Specifically this link.

Many Apple programs use one of two routes, a help system, or a PDF file.


Create HTML or Microsoft Word content and convert to Help file formats or
printed documentation. Features include support for Windows Vista & 2007
Microsoft Office, team authoring, plus more.

True single source, conditional content, PDF export, modular help.
Help & Manual is the most powerful authoring tool for technical
documentation. Boost your productivity!
