Subject:Re: Microsoft HTML Help Workshop From:Sheridan Adjei <sheridan -dot- adjei -at- AKS -dot- COM> Date:Sun, 18 Jul 1999 13:10:28 GMT
I used the Microsoft HTML Help Workshop v 1.2 about six months ago. It does
everything you may want in a help system. Beware, it had limited ability
dealing with context sensitive help.
After working with it for almost three months, I was instructed to drop it
for the following reasons:
We needed to install IEv3 or above on our clients machines or our
clients must be running Win 98 or NT 4
The product manager was not willing to support the product's Help by
imposing these on our clients, so here I am, back to good ole WinHelp.
Use if none of the above is your concern, besides it is the future if
the dominating OS is Windows.
