Re: online tutorial
I need to create a web based tutorial for a client. Ideally, I'd like to produce the tutorial both as a web based set of documents and as a pdf file. The first tutorial will have about 100 pages for the first version, with the possibility of doubling or tripling over time, as new topics are added. I'd like simple navigation : TOC, then navigation of (back|next) through the sections at the same level.
There's no full time documentation staff (different thread, obviously!), so I need to design something that could be picked up and modified by a developer.
I like WikiWriter for this kind of project. See the Help file with tutorial at (done in WikiWriter, in fact) at
http://hytext.com/iwiki/ (Tutorial is bottom item on rightside menu). It's quick and easy to use, produces solid output in HTML and single-file multipage MHT (all pages and graphics in a single file). It has a couple of trick tools to assist in producing output for HTML Help CHM files, too. Sales pitch is at http://hytext.com/ww/
Disclaimer: Of course, the fact that I develop and market WikiWriter has nothing to do with my fondness for the product, since I am by nature an objective, rational, impartial type of fellow.
