ishing-dita-content that might serve as a starting point. I recently
updated the download link on that page to point to the place where

overview of Eclipse Help and the CS plug-in, but I'm wondering if we
need to go further, and provide clear installation instructions. Perhaps
we also need to put together a minimum Eclipse setup for supporting
Help. Unless this has already been done, in which case we could point to

I think Stan has encountered some similar difficulties. What does
everyone think about this issue? Jeff, do you have any advice or
