As many of you know, both Microsoft and Netscape are currently developing
HTML online help systems. I'm told that Microsoft's HTML Help supports Java
and ActiveX, while Netscape's NetHelp supports only Java. They will probably
not be compatible, and each company will be attempting to define the
industry standard. Blue Sky have stated that they will be upgrading their
Robohelp products asap to cover both the Microsoft and Netscape versions.
Final versions of all these products were not yet available when I last
checked; about 10 days ago.

Good Luck
