Hi Prabhath,
I used JavaHelp for one project, and found I had to rewrite parts of it to make the output look half decent.
After a while I abandoned JavaHelp and returned to using compressed HTML.

We are generating JavaHelp from RoboHelp (version X. 5.0.2) for a huge and complex HTML project that we recently inherited. We installed Java 2 SDK (
and Java Help ( to be able to generate JavaHelp from RoboHelp.

While the numbers and bullets look fine in the project, and in WebHelp, the alignment is completely messed up in JavaHelp - looks very bad. The project has around 2000 HTML files and a multi-layered TOC, so moving to another source format may not be very feasible, unless it only involves re-creating the TOC using the HTML files.
