I need to develop an online line (preferably interactive)
tutorial for a new MSWindows product. Does anyone have
suggestions for tools/sources of information for this sort
of thing. If you've done online tutorials before, I'd like
to hear about your experiences (how long it took, etc).
Thanks in advance.
