HELP & MANUAL(H&M) - Build Type "WEBHELP".

Highly customized features and styling added via custom templates, Javascript programs, and Cascading Style Sheets.

 

H&M is a modern help authoring tool with extensive import conversion capabilities, and multiple output formats. Custom modifications are possible to the build templates and scripts used by H&M which will allow for the addition of features and formatting, not normally available in current "Help" formats. This ability is utilized to create a near-duplicate of the original project, in a new authoring environment. This will be available cross-platform, and viewable via standards compliant HTML browsers. Initial target platforms are MS Windows XP SP2 with IE8 and above and MAC OS X v10+ with Safari v2+ and above.
