| I'm sending this again in case it didn't get through the first time. I
| need to create HTML-based help files that can be used in PC and Unix
| environments. I've been reading about NetHelp 2.0. Have any of you
| used it? I've used RoboHelp : ) and Doc-To-Help ; ( before, so if
| you have any experience with those tools, how do you think that they
| compare with NetHelp? Thanks in advance -- I appreciate your help!
NetHelp is a proprietary Netscape technology for delivering online help that
can be viewed in Netscape Navigator on multiple platforms. NetHelp has been
discontinued and is no longer being developed. It is not a good
cross-platform solution because it is bound to the Netscape browser; it can
not be viewed with Internet Explorer, Opera, or any other non-Netscape
NetHelp can't be compared to RoboHELP or Doc-To-Help, since NetHelp is a
help platform, whereas the other two are help development tools.
