Subject: RE: DOCBOOK: docbook->compiled winhelp

I have used ArborText's Epic Publisher successfully to create compiled HTML
Help. Epic's publishing engine is similar (if not the same) to the ADEPT
one. Either one works well out of the box. My mileage shows that the
investment in ADEPT or EPIC Publisher is well worth it.

You should bear in mind though that as long as you are using DocBook DTD,
all is well. However, setting up ADEPT or EPIC to publish using another DTD
is a *lot* of work.

I don't know of any application that produces WinHelp though. Since WinHelp
is almost dead, you may as well join the HTML Help band-wagon. It's
superior, anyway.

Adept Editor has such a module

Check out

Click the 'DocBook application' link.

I have no experience with the product and would like hear from those
who have experienced the product.

You could, of course, build one yourself. It should not be that

Are there any tools to create a "Compiled Winhelp" file aout of a
DocBook source file?
