X-posting to Framers & Techwr-l (apologies for any doubling up)

Dear all

BACKGROUND
A couple of weeks ago I asked for ideas/advice/experience regarding getting
to JavaHelp from FrameMaker 5.5.6+SGML via Web Publisher. This actually
generated more off-line questions to me than answers. A few kind souls
responded who'd given the above a shot had pretty 'mixed' results. In
particular, for help and ideas thanks to Katav, Chris Hamilton, Bill
Swallow, Paul Carr, Mike Foster and Steven Evanina.

SUMMARY
Mostly, for now, it seems that until JavaHelp is out of beta that the 'great
concept' remains mostly that. Neither Adobe nor Sun responded to my emails.
However, Quadralay were prompt (approx 4 days) in sending back a real
response from a real human being, a Tech Support person named Mike Johnson.
However, I've not yet heard a 'success' story from anyone using their
JavaHelp template.

POST-SUMMARY
If anyone has had a different experience in going from FM to JavaHelp via
Web Publisher I invite you to add your voice. Clearly, others (including
me!) will be interested to hear from you.

The slightly abridged response from Quadralay follows.


All the best

QUADRALAY RESPONSE:
> Currently with Publisher 4.0 we do have a JavaHelp template that you
> can download from our website. This can be found in our Publisher Support
> Knowledge Base in the JavaHelp article. You can use this with your
existing
> installation of Frame+SGML with Publisher 4.0 to generate JavaHelp.

> We will also be including this template with the next version of
> Publisher 4.5 when it's released. Publisher 4.5 will also support the
> mapping of your SGML elements. Keep an eye to the website in the upcoming
> weeks for more information regarding the release of Publisher 4.5.
