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.
What tools have people used to create Windows Help from FrameMaker files?
Do you just export .RTF files and then use something like RoboHelp or
Doc-to-Help? Any warnings about the limitations of this approach?

They will require Win95, but will probably release before Microsoft
releases tools for HTML-based help. Has anyone heard Microsoft's latest
release schedule on that?
