Bill,

Yes, You can use WinHelp Office 95 or Robohelp 4 to develop your 16 help files. RH gives you all of the compliers for both, and you set 16 or 32 bit right at the begining of the project.

In addition, you get the ability to convert your 16 bit help to 32 bit, and the ability to covert both to HTML or HTML help.

The same functionality is also available in WexTech's new Documentation Studio (New Doc2Help) and ForeHelp's latest version. HDK is also supposed to have that ability shortly.

See the Winhelp-l list for more details, or visit those company's web sites.

Happy Helping,

I am one of a number of ReliaStar technical writers doing online help
authoring/designing/developing for end-users with a 16 bit, 3.1
platform, using MS Word 6.

These help systems we develop are attached to business applications,
such as the Customer Service Workbench and the ReliaStar Connection.

Can we use WinHelp Office Suite/RoboHELP 4 with its 32 bit, (Windows
95 or Windows NT platform)--to author/design/develop for users with 16
bit on 3.1 platform?

We want to be cautious. Yet we are excited about the advancements and
functionality of WinHelp Office Suite/RoboHELP 4. I am sure these same
considerations apply to other online help applications (Doc-to-Help;
ForeHelp, etc.) when the end users are still on a 3.1 platform.


What would you advise us? Your response will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks.
