Help Pages info

I am writing help pages to integrate with for my VB 6 program. To give a touch of professionalism I would like to replicate the standard help format. Despite searching I can not find any useful info. Can anyone ‘Help’ please.

Remember that there are two types of help files. The original type was usually written in Word and made into a help file with the Help Compiler program (HC.exe). The new one is brower-based (.chm files)

I suggest that you start here.

Thank you for the suggested link, I have search the site but still confused. There are several help downloads at varying prices, but the info is sparse. Is there a recognised standard or just pot luck? Whilst searching I discovered WHAT6 is this worth pursuing?

What6 might be interesting. I've never tried it. But it was written to use with Word 6, the last 16-bit version of Word. Also after Word 7 (aka Word 95), the Word scripting language changed from Wordbasic to VBA.

This site might be useful to you.
