> Hello All,
> James Cort asks what is the difference between HTML and HTML Help, and I
> am going to try and give a reasonable answer.
> HTML is a mark-up language that allows documents to be viewed by users on
> different platforms, with any HTML browser.
> Unlike HTML, HTML Help is NOT browser independent. HTML Help relies on
> Internet Explorer 4.x. I'm not sure about platform dependence, because all
> our users are NT, but that might also be an issue.
> HTML Help is a single file that is created by compiling HTML docs. Rather
> than distribute a whole slew of HTML files to a customer, you can just
> distribute one, HTML Help file (.chm). With HTML Help HATs you can create
> TOCs and Indexes, which is not so easy in regular HTML.
> IE 4.x help is HTML Help, if you want to see an example. In fact,
> Microsoft is providing HTML Help with all its new aps.
> HTH,
