Our group has decided to use HyperHelp. There were a lot of neat
features in it. It has only one charge for the viewer so you don't
have to charge the customer for the viewer. We didn't evaluage
Acrobat, but it seemed to fit more with a book mentality than online,
which is what we mostly produce.
Hope that helps.

to be unique yet not too far off the main stream we need this
