Researching embedded help (EPSS, user assistance, PCD,
etc.). If you've successfully worked with developers to create embedded
help, please tell me:

--what tool you (and the developers) used
--amount of effort vs. creating "traditional", standalone online help
--amount of time vs. creating "traditional", standalone online help
--platform (thin client, thick client, etc.)
--how testing was conducted
--customer satisfaction vs. satisfaction with "traditional", standalone
online help
--lessons learned

Thank you!
