TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.

> without a specific word processing application. (using Word for print
> HCP for Help, considering Frame for print)
I created a template in Microsoft Word that I use for publishing
online, portable documents. The hypertext is provided primarily
through GOTOBUTTON fields. Clients can use the Word Viewer, they
do not need Word. However, they must be able to run Windows apps.
We also tried Frame with FrameViewer, but our clients did not like
the FrameViewer (hard to use).
We are currently looking at Acrobat (particularly given the tie in
with Frame for the hypertext links).
