I'm very interested in this info as well. I really would love to doc this
job I have, a small Windows-based survey software, with _one_ file for both
the print material (user manual: install, run, distribute, analyze) and
online help. I have a commitment to using Doc-to-Help.

It would be wonderful to see a sample page from the
example mentioned earlier.
