I would like to learn how to write on-line help, but it's clear there are
two things I need but am not sure how to get: 1. some program that lets
people create on-line help systems, 2. some book(s) that teach me how
to design good on-line documentation. Any suggestions? BTW, I'm looking
at Windows help systems because I'm running windows at home. I'm also
running BSDI on a PC, if that helps open up the range of programs I might
look at...

I just bought "Designing & Writing Online Documentation" by
William Horton. (2nd Edition). A really great book. Over 400 pages.
Deals with making design decisions, contains many examples and how to
do messages, menus, help files, tutorials, hypertext, hypermedia, etc.
Pub is Wiley.
