>Is either the PC or the Mac more appropriate for creating on-line
Remember, they are just tools. Neither is more appropriate except in the
context of what you are trying to do. Once you know what the project is,
what is required and expected, the platforms that must be supported,
etc., then you will know what platform to develop on. There is also the
fact that the company you are working for may supply the workstation and
may have settled on PCs or Macs.
I'm afraid I'm ignorant, (that's different from stupid; ignorant can be
cured; stupid is forever). I'm interested in learning how to do on-line
docs ona Mac. Is there a Mac version of RoboHelp or similar program? How
does one do on-line on the Mac, Hypercard?
