I have been curious about DocBook myself. Now you answered a basic question
of mine. Thanks.

I have OpenOffice, which is a free and open source office suite (word
processor, database, presentation program, drawing program, spreadsheet) and
I think that it is kind of impressive. One feature of the suite is that it
will allow you to save in a DocBook format. I don't know how to do this or
what it means. I assume that it lets you set up a DocBook system? Or create
DocBook docs? Jim Jones

When you say you're looking over options, it isn't clear what you
mean. Options for tools? For Help formats?

>DocBooks open source program

DocBook isn't a software program. It is an XML standard. You would
still need to buy an authoring tool (XML editor) to create your Help


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!
