Oops, this is question number two about the same topic .. I'm writing some
documentation that will go on-line in the form of a Windows Help file and be
printed. I've peeked at some of the tools (like HDK and Forehelp), but was
wondering if someone who'd done a similar job could give me some help on
deciding what to use.
The main thrust is to put the info on-line, so that is what should look
the nicest if compromises need to be made.
OR ... I've heard some talk about using SGML and/or HTML to create
source text for such a task. Is that a good idea?
