JavaHelp is Sun's cross-platform online help system designed to be the standard vehicle delivering help for Java applications. HelpBreeze supports the new JavaHelp 2.0 release as well as JavaHelp 1.x.
HTML Help is the next generation help system from Microsoft and is now the standard help system in Windows 2000/XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. HelpBreeze supports the latest release of Microsoft HTML Help.
In addition to these online help formats, HelpBreeze JavaHelp Edition also automatically generates professional quality printed documentation (see an example ) and plain HTML (complete with table of contents and index) suitable for the web or your intranet. HelpBreeze is a complete, single-source documentation solution.
