Thanks to everyone who responded my message. I understand that this
information has been posted several times in the past year (?). My apologies
to those of you who have already seen this. I've included a number of
additional listservers and Web sites that some techwhirlers were kind enough to
send.

FWIW -- I've already subscribed to the winhlp-l list and it looks like it is
VERY worthwhile. The discussion seems to include all forms of online
documentation and help (Adobe PDFs and Folio Views), and not just winhlp.exe
topics.

Happy surfing,

Winhlp-L is a listserv for people creating hypertext files for the
Windows environment using Winhelp or Multimedia Viewer. This list enables
authors to share ideas and provide each other with answers to technical
questions concerning the Microsoft compiler (available ftp from
192.75.71.35 directory: winhlp) and WinWord formatting. Various
freeware/shareware/commerical programs that aid the authoring process
are also discussed.
