I had a meeting with my boss today to discuss our online help options. He
wants to go to the next step and talk to the SW group but had a few
excellent questions that I need to answer before we can do that.

1) Our medical device uses a touchscreen. Can HTML Help take advantage of
this touchscreen technology? For example, are the links, etc, "touchable"
or is it strictly mouse driven?

2) Can HTML Help be designed so that the primary window is always on top?

3) Can HTML Help autosize or use scalable fonts? Our device is available
in two sizes and we'd like for our help to use appropriate font sizes
based on the device size.

Thanks in advance,
