Re: Differentiating between software versions in help articles
It's been a long time now since I did a help project, but why wouldn't you just create separate articles for the version-specific topics and then have each one map only to the SW version it applies to?
When I ran into this it was "too much trouble" to make a separate set of help files for each release, and someone suggested an arcane scheme instead. If I remember correctly the problem was never properly addressed, and instead died with the demise of the company. We were looking into the rat-hole of having to write the "Help System User's Guide."
