Good question. I think I mean 'both'.

o If you get anything UNIX related from MS, it probably won't work for
you at all, but your PC audience will be happy (assuming you can get
the product to work well enough to deliver something).

o If you get something UNIX related from Netscape, you and your PC
audience will both be fine.

If you and your audience are both UNIX-oriented, then your best bet is
certainly Netscape (for HTML help). Microsoft and UNIX are two completely
different universes.
