Michael Herman (Parallelspace) asked

We're a software company with a lot of traditional Word based product and
user based documentation plus a collection of knowledge base articles.

We like to consolidate all of these Word assets into some sort of web-based
knowledge based solution (that looks/functions like Microsoft's MSDN and
TechNet web sites).

I used to be familiar with RoboHelp and Doc-to-Help but haven't used these
products in a long time. Which one is best from your experience? Are
there any other old/new products on the market that are good for repurposing
content (mostly Word) into as web based knowledge base?


Hi Michael,

Have you tried looking at a Wiki?
