I have the flyer for Blue Sky's Web Office suite (officially announced
yesterday), and hope to get the full press kit soon. I will post a review
for anyone interested, but the HTML conversion tool is the basis; it uses
Internet Assistant for Word 7.0, will create map files, and does link
checking and diagnostics. Good old Paint Shop Pro is included + "Hotspot
Studio" for linked graphics. $499 retail/$399 promo price. Since it uses
Internet Assistant, I'd be curious to see how that matches up to HotMetal
Pro's frame- and table-making.

>2. I use Help to HTML from RoboHelp to instantly create the html pages. The

>After the automatic transfer to html, I have the structure of my new site.
