All,

I attended a workshop on On-line Documentation given by JoAnn Hackos
a few weeks ago. At that time, she announced that Microsoft had
announced it would no longer support WinHelp.

MS planned to begin some sort of help system that would use SGML.

I may have the details garbled, but I know the main idea is correct--
WinHelp is going away.

Are any of you aware of this news? It seems that so much traffic is
generated by WinHelp discussion on this list, that someone would be
a little concerned about what was to come.

Just a curiosity on my part...I work in the Unix/Mac world and have not
had the pleasure of using MS products. Nonetheless, I thought I'd
raise the flag and see what those of you in that world knew of the
upcoming change...

Best to all!
