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.
You might also look at using ISYS 4.0 by Odyssey Development and EPUBLISH by
Stattech. Both companies have pages on the web.
Both packages allow for easy CD Rom Publication and full text searching. The
EPUBLISH product has true hypertext links and jumps, in look and feel has
all that Winhelp has and then some, works with Word, and has some very nice
automatic indexing and linking features.
