    Building Help? (AXP 10.2627.2625)

    I've been looking over the MS dox in re HTML help and find it tedious, and the work involved even more tedious.

    Do you have a favorite tool that makes this an easier job?

    Take a look at <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.helpware.net/>http://www.helpware.net/</A> and see if anything there looks like a worksaver. I haven't built help files with the new HTML help, so I can't speak to the issue. All my experience was with the equally tedious earlier versions of the help compiler.

    You might try HelpScribble. You can download a fully functioning demo version at http://www.helpscribble.com/ and the registered version is only $99. It is really cool, I hated trying to wade through the directions for creating a help file using Microsoft tools and when I got this I looked through the documentation and then created a help file on my own within minutes!

    The program will create regular compiled help AND HTML help files as well.

    Hope that helps!
