Well, I've used both (RH first), but only in limited fashion. All we
make is standalone WebHelp, so anything to do with context-sensitive
deployment and with any other flavor of help is outside my scope
(someday, the product lines that I document will switch over to a GUI
interfaces that could benefit from a context-sensitive help - I'll get
to grow my Help chops _and_ wrestle with developers on a whole new
frontier :-) )
Meanwhile, I could live with either HAT, so I'm not entirely
disaffected... just grumpy about the pot-holes and the kind of
feature-itis prioritization that's evident in the releases of the HAT
I'm currently using.
