Hello,
I need your recommendations for the following situation:
* For a windows-based application, we want self-contained help. In other words, we do NOT want the help system to be displayed using a browser (no WebHelp). What would be the best help output to use?
Obviously, Microsoft HTML Help (CHM) would be an option. (It doesn't involve a Web browser; it's all contained in one file and uses its own viewer.) However, CHM is very old, and there are problems opening it across a network.
What would be the best modern alternative to CHM? Is there any? What about DotNet Help output from Madcap?
Thanks for any opinions you can give.
Keith
