I'm interested in hearing from anyone using HTML for online doc design. We
have a lot of hard-copy documentation that we want to move to an online
form. I have resisted using online documentation because our "base"
standard display is VT100. (This is a very robust university environment
with a zillion different types of displays sitting on desktops. We support
UNIX flavors, VMS, CMS, MVS and DOS and Mac OS; and lots of applications.)
I think HTML may give us the flexibitiy we need for good online doc design
-- even at VT100 level. Has anyone found a translator software to convert
docs in a WP format or ASCII format to HTML? How much time does it take to
build an online doc in HTML? Pros and cons? Advice? Caveats?
