JavaHelp is a royal pain in the butt. Cleaning up the output from RoboHELP,
for instance, is a full-time job, because JavaHelp does not handle all
standard HTML well, and many of the extras that RH sticks into it make JH
look terrible-- extra space around tables from extra paragraph tags, for
instance. Web Help is nice and neat, HTML standards are fairly easy, and
there's no extra software to install to make it run-- any browser will do.

This leap toward Java Help smacks of the uninformed managerial masses going
with "the next great thing" without knowing what "the next great thing"
actually is or does.
