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,
JavaHelp, HTMLHelp.

This is the reason why I am asking for your advice.


The problem to solve:

My boss advised me to adapt NetHelp to create

search feature
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:
The JavaScript application and its online help should run at least in MS Internet Explorer and
Netscape Navigator.
Using NetHelp might result in developing two versions of online Help... (NetHelp for Netscape,
HTMLHelp for Microsoft)

The question:

Is NetHelp really the best choice?

Can JavaHelp offer the same features or more?

Thanks in advance
