I'm working on a help project with the following requirements. My client
wants to have one set of help files for both the Mac and Win95 platforms to
save time and money when the software is eventually upgraded. I have found
only one practical way to do this, that is to write the help in RoboHELP or
some other Windows tool and then use QuickHelp to convert it to Mac. When
it's time to upgrade, I can simply edit the Winhelp files and then use
QuickHelp again to convert them.
Does anybody have a different idea? I'd love to hear about other experiences
and tools that I could use.
