I've submitted the link to my article about cross-platform help
previously (

But now, I've gotten rid of the annoying popup windows from Geocities in
the demo help itself.

I wrote this in UNIX framemaker, and it appears *exactly* as it comes
from Webworks Publisher 4.0 with two exceptions. I used Pagemill to
make the frameset and ensure the links from the various frames work

One request for feedback: I made the demo help
( using
large monitors (17" and 19"). I've changed the resolution on the PC
(19" monitor) to check its appearance on smaller displays, but can't
really tell if it's usable as-is. If it isn't usable on a smaller
display, it's easy enough to fix....

So, those of you with smaller monitors, what do you think?... (Please
reply directly, and I'll post a summary)
