My colleague, Kathryn Fryer has asked me to post this request:

Hi! I'm looking for information on tools for creating and displaying
online information for Windows NT. I have a number of questions:

1) What tools are currently available to create online contextual help?
What is available for stand-alone online documents? Is there just the
NT help compiler?

2) What tutorial tools are available?

3) Will help created for (and tools running on) Windows 3.1 also work
for NT? How different is the NT help compiler from the Win3.1 version?

4) Are there tools that are platform-independent, ie. that could be used
to create online information for both NT and OS/2 from a single source?
Is anyone currently developing online information for both systems? How
are you doing it? (single source, complete rewrite, some of both?)

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
