Oh, it's much longer-lived than that. Flare comes from those same
wonderful folks who gave us RoboHelp way back when, and back in RH's Blue
Sky days, it had (surprise, surprise) really awful online help. Back then,
what made this acceptable was the quick and cheerful manner in which they
took every tech support phone call. No idea what things are like at
MadCap, as I've not done any OLH in years.
