Your product is:
- help file
- possible online manual | one or both
- possible hardcopy manual |

You don't specify in your message: online, hardcopy, or both.
I have used Doc-To-Help to produce an online manual quickly.
Then I schedule the manual for hypertext conversion. Other
packages offer more than Doc-To-Help (and relatives) for the
online documentation development effort. Other DTP packages
offer much more than Doc-To-Help (and relatives) for hardcopy
out. === I would bet real money Bill Gates is fixin' to change
all that. ===
