    WinHelp vs HTMLHelp

    Hello,

    I'm looking into adding context-sensitive help into our application. From what I can gather, there are two options: WinHelp, and HTML Help. Anyone have any thoughts on which of the two options is the way to go? Is HTML Help supported well enough for it to be a viable option?

    Thanks,

    Just

    HTML Help is as well supported as any Microsoft Help system. If you want it to be used on Windows 95 Internet Explorer must be installed. Naturally, because HTML Help source is in HTML it's a lot easier to manage than icky WinHelp RTF...

    I would agree, the old .rtf system is a legacy technology.

    Thanks for the replies, HTMLHelp is definitely looking like the way to go at the moment.
