My department recently began discussing alternatives to the
standard Windows Help format. We are beginning to document
software products that will rely on Web-based technology. We
have discussed several variations of HTML Help as a
solution, but none look particularly stable. We are considering
distributing PDF files with bookmarks and keyword links as
the Online Help. Has anyone tried this? What are the pros
and cons? Any other comments are welcome....
