Which online help format?

Scroll Prev Up Next More

You can use plain HTML plus JavaScript to create an online help system that can be viewed with any web browser, or you can choose a format that must be viewed with a special help viewer.

Some formats let you store help either locally on the users’ computers or on a web server. Other formats work exclusively locally or exclusively on a web server.

Choosing the right help format isn’t a decision that you, the author, can make on your own. The product must be able to install and to call the help system, so always involve product development at an early stage.
