What's the format of the base document? Is it FrameMaker, Word . . . ? I've
only done this by using the base doc . . . to create each type. If all you
have is a HLP file, try reverse-engineering it, for example, RoboHelp will
convert a HLP to DOC and then converting the intermediate file to HTML.
Best of luck.
