WebHELP

This is an example of how you can create your own Help Documentation in HTML in a way that looks very professional. David Griffiths Outline.Class java applet is the key feature of this help document. The branching tree-view menu makes it easy for the end-user to navigate through your help topics. 

Use the NeoBook DOSCommand to launch your WebHelp documentation. Launch the file named "start.htm". It contains a javascript that loads the frameset in window-size that you specify. The example is set at 600,400 but you can change it to whatever size you need...

Window-Size:
displayWindow('frameset.htm',600,400)

Button Command:
DOSCommand "[PubDir]help\start.htm" "" "Normal"

You could use the InternetLink command but, in this case, the javascript in "start.htm" that opens the frameset will present the user with a "Close Window? Yes/No" dialog. If you instead use DOSCommand this dialog will not appear and Windows will still launch the associated web browser.
