I am just beginning to collect some experience in creating HTML help.
My first task has to be done in 2 days.... that is, I have little time for comparing NetHelp,
This is the reason why I am asking for your advice.
The problem to solve:
My boss advised me to adapt NetHelp to create
self-synchronizing table of contents
and for the customer: an easy-to-maintain set of HTML files
Of course, I will do the job
there might be a problem:
Using NetHelp might result in developing two versions of online Help... (NetHelp for Netscape,
HTMLHelp for Microsoft)
