Yes. Vim. No. :-)

Use QTHelp to generate user help, as you mentioned.

Use Qdoc or Doxygen to generate dev docs from source comments. For
Doxygen, look for the QHP_* and QH* tags to integrate with QtHelp.

Note that as of v4.4, they changed their doc toolchain.

The source code for Qt is available, you can see how the Qt tools use
their own doc tools internally. Besides Qt-provided examples, there are
many open source projects that use this toolchain, and you can see how
they use QtHelp in their code.

QtCentre has some forums that might help with Qthelp issues.

Sorry, I don't know how to integrate FM or RoboHelp with the Qt
toolchain. There is a Vim script that integrates Qt Help strings. :-)


PS: Nitpick: QT is Apple's QuickTime, Qt is the Nokia toolkit in question.
