Hi all

I posted a few weeks ago asking for people's experiences so far with using
HTML for online help. As promised, here's the summary:

-1 person doing it
-2 people planning it (3 if you include me)
-no one has found a browser that's particularly low on RAM
-the opportunities can be limitless (especially if you start using Java)

I also recently received some mail from Netscape announcing the beta
version of their "Net Help Software Development Kit." It's available for
download at

They've designed a sample help interface which looks suspiciously like
WinHelp but without any search capabilities.

So, not much to report.
