For starters, you might want to check out WorldView Press. It's a
powerful Interleaf application you can use to build online document
collections. If your documents are already in Interleaf format, this
software package can save you many hours of manual labor, because it'll
automatically create hypertext links for Table of Contents entries,
autoreferences, and autonumbers. Any documents you put online for folks
to read you can group by feature, product, author, or whatever category
you think would be useful for searching through the document collection.

Using Interleaf's HyperLeaf Toolkit, you can also develop robust online
help systems for any GUI application, with external links going to
windows, dialog boxes, help buttons, pulldown menus, and
context-sensitive fields in the application itself, and internal links
pointing to different screens in your online help system, including
procedural screens, reference screens, and online help TOC screens.

Toolkit, here's a good link to start with:
