I'm looking at different help authoring programs to begin implementing into my application. I'm curious which ones are used most often by VB developers for ease of use, reliability, etc... I see  HtmlHelp is one but is there a better one out there or is that what everyone uses? Just looking for expert opinions/recommendations and/or input. thanks

If you want to buy a one then Robohelp is the best. I have used help authoring software from ComponentOne that is also very good.

I used HTML-Help, took some time to learn, but is easy and it looks like the MSDN-help files.
And importantly it is free!

thanks so far. I'll leave this open for a few days just to see if anyone else wants to post. So far I'm thinking htmlhelp will be my best solution if I want to stay with freeware help systems. I don't think my company will pay for this type of feature.
