Hey, Do you think that paper manual days are numbered? I think so if
the manual's subject equipment or a handy CD-ROM reader is available.
So, I have just completed a three-day course at Rice U conducted by
Dr. John Brockmann on the subject of S/W docs and most important, on
the move from paper to electronic publishing. Great course, now I am
researching the possibilities for combined use of one coded text and
graphic source for:
* on-line help
* on-line doc
* and paper manuals
SGML may be the answer, but I need to do more research. Help would be
of interest to everyone one on TECHWR-L who write paper manuals.
Some companies are in the business like: HotMetal from ?Softquad?,
Doc-To-Help from Wex Tech. Does anyone know how to contact these
StorySpace V1.3 is yet another related product from Eastgate systems,
but what I seen was not Windows based. They are at 800-562-1638.
