Wow! This is the kind of exuberant reaction I was in search of before we
made the commitment to buy the software. Too late now...
You're right, RH has oddities and it looks like it always will. Part of that
can be blamed on its dependence on Word.
Cynthia, how do you respond to charges that ForeHelp's HTML-based help piece
is not up to the task yet? Have you tried it? That was what turned us away
We liked ForeHelp's Winhelp piece VERY much. But they said they won't have
the improved HTML piece until Feb.

RUN screaming into the sunset like your butt's on fire away from RoboHelp.
Buy ForeHelp. It's cheaper, it has the same or better features, and --
here's the GOOD news -- it's a stand-alone product, NOT dependent on Word!!
