Just as a question, how did you structure the review of your field-level
help, if you had any? I've been assigned this as a project for our product
and I'm wondering the best way to get meaningful technical review for my
field help.

Right now I'm creating a data base in Access that takes each dialog box
and briefly describes it and its contents. Once that's done, I plan to
make links to the help text contained in each dialog box and use that
along with screen clips of each box for potential reviewers.

However, this approach will take some time to do, especially as I'm
working from scratch. I was just wondering if anyone has had a quicker
system. There will probably be many potential reviewers rather than a few,
so suggestions that recommend installing ZipReview 3.0201209 on all
reveiwers' machines aren't going to work around here.
