Joe Welinski released his Software User Assistance Tools & Technologies survey this week
(check out -- lots of other good info in the survey as well). I was surprised
to see that 7% of the respondents still use some WinHelp. It also makes me happy because I
have a soft spot in my heart for WinHelp and would hate to see it die :) (though I've moved
completely to CHMs).
