WWP's help file, or the help you created with WWP? Do
you have Java enabled on your browser? Which browser
are you using? What version?

Have you mapped every style and created a WWP style
for every Frame style you use? Did you correctly map
the TOC and IX entries? What graphics macro are you
mapping to?

Are you using the "Java TOC" or plain HTML TOC? How
big is your help file? How many topics? How large was
your source book?

Did they investigate your project's size?

I can sympathize with your frustrations, but you
really didn't provide much information for us to
assess your situation and offer constructive feedback.
Can you be more specific with regards to your project?
How many topics? How large was your source book? Did
you map everything? Which graphic macro are you using?
How large are your TOC and IX? How are they
constructed? How are they mapped? etc...
