See if fellow Adobe Community Expert Peter Grainge's site can help here.
I am not clear as to what it is you want to edit post generation.
The variable "Colour" allows you to generate Red in one output and Green in another. What is it that you want the user to be able to do? Change that to Orange or edit the output in some entirely different way?

Hi Pete,Thanks for responding. I realize it's never good to edit files outside of Robohelp... In our web based end user application that's integrated with our Help system, we'd like to allow the end users to customize their WebHelp on the fly. They don't have access to Robohelp. I know this pretty much isn't recommended, but was wondering if anyone knew of what was possible..
For example, if we allowed an end user to open a .htm page that was used by the Webhelp layout (that was already output), if they made changes to it? Would those changes be reflected in the compiled version? Or would there be other things like FTS index, TOC, and other things that would also need to be considered.
I'm looking for guidance on this, so I can explain to my supervisor that this isn't recommended. That changes are only recommended within Robohelp.. otherwise, all sorts of other errors could happen. But if it's possible, then any information on what can and can't be done would be great too.Appreciate you taking the time to respond. Thanks
I have managed to do some post-processing to Generated WebHelps.
We need our helps also in Arabic and Hebrew. Obviously, I cannot edit those languages in Robohelp 7 but I can generate the output from translated files. After that, there are several .htm files in the output, that still need to be changed to right-to-left orientation. Originally, I did it by replacing the (html) opening tags with (html dir=rtl), with Helpware FAR, but now our engineers have automated it for me.
