Dear all,

I am going to have a job interview in the next few days. All I know about
the job itself is that they want someone who can do "raw" HTML and that
they need (probably) user and in-house documentation in HTML.

The company I currently work for has decided not to attempt HTML help yet,
so my experience is very limited in this regard, however I do know raw HTML
and have converted a Winhelp 95 help file to a HTML help file.

What would be the best approach for inter/intra net documentation? They run
their servers on a SUN system, but all the in-house users (I believe) use
Windows 95 or later. They use different web browsers - from Netscape to
Explorer to the Linux versions of the two browsers.

How easy is it to amend and / or modify HTML help.

Which tools do you prefer? (Windows HTML compiler combined with some HTML
authoring tool, raw HTML, HATs?)

How easy is it to change from Winhelp to HTML help considering that I have
experience with HTML?

Is HTML help the form of documentation you would use or is there a better
way to provide the kind of information they want?
