Caryn Rizell asked about developing online help in UNIX and
Glen responded by saying:

>I just wanted to second Glen's remarks--I'm using native Windows help
on the Windows side and HyperHelp on the UNIX platform. We also use
QuickView to port the same source files to the Macintosh. It's not
a perfect solution (expensive, for one thing) but the best available
now I think.

Anyone have a less expensive alternative? I'd like to hear more
from people doing cross-platform help development, so please post
to the list.
