I've already viewed that. It's a touch on the general side, and doesn't not have much in the way of "Best Practices". I'm trying to find something that I can print out, review, make notes on, etc.
I'm not going to attempt a detailed guide here, but a few general hints:
- Keep file and folder structures as simple as possible and don't use more than one level of sub folders for storing topics
- Work locally off the C: drive not My documents or a network drive.
- Help systems comprise large numbers of "topic" files which are like taking a FM chapter and chopping it into bits about the level of major headings.
- To manage the large number of topic files you could use systematic file naming and/or group topics into folders.
- The Topic name should be the same as the title viewed in the topic but the file name can be different if this is needed.
Hope that's useful.
In addition to what others have added, I say it was worth investing time to get your RH style sheet setup to enable you to map your FM styles. This is absolutely key to getting clean RH topics.
