I'd be very interested to hear how you've been able to determine that Bill
Gates and Microsoft own 90% of Blue Sky Software. I'm sure a lot of people
would be interested to hear more about this. Could you cite any sources or
provide any other information to back up your assertion?

FYI, RoboHELP Classic is based on Word, but RoboHELP HTML Edition is a
separate product not based on Word.

Also, it would be really helpful if you'd avoid attaching bitmap files to
your list postings.

Happy holidays!

| Why continue to put up with a product riddled with oddities in the first
| place? Our complacence has lined Bill Gates' pockets and forced
| us to accept
| schlock software as the norm.
| I have used RH5 and RH 7. Uncle Bill and Microsloth own about
| 90% of Blue
| Sky, so guess who decides what the product looks like and how it behaves?
| I've also used ForeHelp 2, FH 2.95, and ForeHelp 3 (ForeFront software).
| My advice?
| 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!!
| Go to for more information about ForeHelp. The only problem
| you'll have using it is getting past the name. It sounds like
| "foreplay" to
| most men, causing unexpected snickers and smirks.
