Choosing HTML Tools
When assessing authoring environments, consider the following
specifics that will help insure the product works with HTML Help:
- HTML markup consistent with the HTML 3.2 or higher specifications.
Ideally, the markup should not rely heavily on local formatting tags
(except when creating DHTML effects).
- Ability to access and edit directly in the code.
- Support for cascading style sheets (CSS).
- Support for dynamic HTML (DHTML). Most HTML editors are limited to
bundling a few scripts, but some include more extensive DHTML support.
- Site management tools, especially global search/replace and automated
- Asset storage or libraries (ways to easily access reusable text and
your own custom code).
- Template creation and implementation.
