I've read "Teach Yourself ActiveX Programming in 21 Days" by Kaufman,
Perkins, & Fleet.
It's a pretty good introductory text. Note that, maybe I'm crazy, but I
believe I have found a few editorial errors in the book in the
examples/demos, i.e., the code listed doesn't always match the
description of the code. Otherwise, it's a useful book. I'm not an
"official programmer," and it doesn't confuse me (for what that's
worth). It also has a CD-ROM with numerous tools, including HTML
editors, the ActiveX Control Pad, and MS add-ons. Not affiliated with
the publisher, btw. Just your average TW looking for ActiveX info.

Subject: Active X book?
Can someone recommend an introductory text that deals with
aspects of ActiveX and how they relate to help authoring?
I've looked at amazon but am a bit confused. Thanks for any
suggestions. I assume that ActiveX only relates to HTMLhelp.
