Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Printing from HTMLhelp doesn't work properly

Good decision, Jirka. No telling what MS will trot out for Longhorn, but
it will NOT be the MS Help 2 that appears in Studio.NET. After negative
reaction from customer test sites, MS quietly announced about a year ago
that this help is dead, will not become a product. Having used it
myself, I consider this decision a blessing. If you must keep up with
each new MS Help du jour, you should be thankful that you won't have to
deal with this one.
