hi, yes, I am using it. There is a documentation that comes with the binaries. you can download the whole package at the given url. I cannot explain it better than in this User Guide. Basically, you are writing the content of the help in html format. JavaHelp does the indexing (for search) and the displaying in a helpviewer for you. what you do in your application is to call the appropriate help class (see the documentation) whenever the user requests help. chantal
