Applications & Other Essential Tools

You might find something Helpful here . . .

Occasionally, we get questions about How We Do Stuff: questions about methods, questions about tools and applications. We try to answer them all as completely as we can. Hey, we're Helpful people.

But we can do better . . .

We Can Tell You, or We Can Show You…


Here's a handful of Winhelp & Html-based Help ideas for your amusement:


Winhelp Demos: These three Winhelp demos are self-contained, single .hlp files. No .dlls, no extra files. Download them all, and store them together. They'll keep track of each other, and show up in each other's menus. Look for more here soon.


Html & JavaScripts: We've included a few useful scripts for help authors and webmeisters. Find non-scrolling headers and footers, draggable, floating toolbars, and AutoLookup scripts that use a commercial online dictionary, or your own local glossary. Check out the scripts, and watch this space for more in the near future.

And We Can Tell You What We Used…


Besides the Help Demos, we've listed some of our favorite freeware, shareware, and can't-live-without-ware.
