Well said. I was just about to write a similar message regarding
porting Frame to WinNT help. NT is one of our platforms and some
people are asking for the release notes in a help format.
The last 2 days have brought several helpful and informative how-to
messages to me on this very subject before I even got the chance to ask.

Great timing all, and thanks for the help.

First, let me say how gratifying it is to share thoughts with (and
mainly learn from) all of my fellow tech writers -- in this case,
regarding Help and HTML files. If an employer ever questions the time
I spend using these lists (Frame and Techwhirlers), I'll just ask them
to think of it as a subscription to a trade journal (which most
employers seem to be willing to pay for) -- only much more focused and

Anyway, another question has arisen in the course of this discussion:
Does anyone have direct experience with creating context-sensitive
links in an application for Frame Help files? From what I hear, this
is fairly straightforward when you're creating WinHelp files; I wonder
whether Frame is behind the curve on this, or if we just haven't heard
from people who have done it.

I'll copy Frame Corp. on this as well, so maybe we'll hear something
from them.
