I found out yesterday from a RoboHelp competitor that what I need is Microsoft Help 2.0 (MS Help 2.0). I would love to know if anyone has an idea if Microsoft technical writers actually develop their Microsoft Office help using MS Help 2.0.
I also wanted to find out if I could create single pane help with RoboHelp and Macromedia/Adobe Support told me it wasn't possible with basic RoboHelp Office X5. I also searched the help files of RoboHelp Office X5 and didn't find anything about support for .NET, but did find a few topics that mentioned Visual Studio .NET. I also found a page that lists "RoboHelp Office X5 Pro for .NET" as an upgrade option, with a street price of $999. One idea might be to call Adobe and ask if they can hook you up with a customer who purchased the .NET upgrade and is currently using it so that you can ask them questions to find out if it's worth it. If you don't have an Adobe support contract, you'll probably need to pay a few bucks to get an answer. Sorry I don't have a solution, but I just thought I'd share what I found.
It turns out that FlashHelp's vertical skins are exactly what I needed.
