Hi Paul,
The DocBook xsls can create HTML out of the box. I haven't looked at OS
X Help in years, but IIRC, it's just html with some metadata added to
the <head> to cause the topic to appear in the right place in the nav
structures and search results. You may have to do some customization to
cause that metadata to appear in the right place. Bob's book is a great
place to learn about doing these customizations:


Yes Ive come to much the same conclusion, i think Im going to stick with docbook and try and generate OSX Help Book from chunked html output. But I'm surprised no-one has done this before, or perhaps they have but havent open sourced it.


To unsubscribe, e-mail: docbook-apps-unsubscribe@lists.oasis-open.org
For additional commands, e-mail: docbook-apps-help@lists.oasis-open.org

FYI in case it helps anybody, this is the best I can come up with so far
