I am using publisher with frame. I recently downloaded javahelp 1.0 and
installed it, and then attempted to use the publisher javahelp template
to make a test file. I think I was able to make the help file, but I
couldn't get the viewer to work. You have to go through a DOS prompt to
get the viewer to function, but it just didn't work, and I was merely
experimenting, so I did not pursue it.

Publisher notes that javahelp is still quite buggy. I have the feeling
that it may simply not be at a stage where one can use it reliably.

Other experiences?
