I am currently developing a 1-2 night in-house class for our technical
writers on improving their on-line help. I would like the benefit of your
thoughts, input and experience as to the items to focus on in the class.

on-line help / documentation.
Windows 3.1 and Win95 are the major platforms with Robohelp the most used
So as to not clutter up the list please send your questions and replies to
I really appreciate any and all of your help!
