Hi everyone,

We produce CHM files for Help on our systems. I have encountered numerous
questions posted about Eclipse Help, in particular in conjunction with DITA
authoring. We have had no thoughts of changing our output formats, but in a
moment of enquiry, I started wondering about the format of delivery. I have
to look into what language our developers use to see if it's supported
before I even consider changing the format of our deliverables.

I did a quick google search and read some information but I'm wondering,
those of you using Eclipse Help, what are the requirements, benefits, and
obstacles you've encounterd? I'm thinking that since DITA and Eclipse are
intensely IBM that moving to Eclipse as an output format would be
*relatively* straightforward for our DITA-based content.

incapable of forming such opinions.
