Janie Bergen wonders whether HULK will do a better job at help authoring...
Although I don't use HULK to create and build my help projects, I have
used it to perform certains tests on my help files. You can use HULK to
test your keywords, topics, context strings and hotspots. I like to use
the program to generate lists that map keywords, context strings, and
titles to topic numbers or titles. But - and this is a big but - HULK
very often ignores a few of the project's rtf files. For example, it'll
generate a keyword map on only two out of my four rtf files. This is the
reason I would definitely not suggest abandoning your current help tool.
HULK is on the MSCDN Microsoft Developers CD-ROM. Why not try it out using your
existing help files and decide for yourself.
