The resulting file can then be submitted to a manual edition of automatically inserted commands and created links ❺S. MS Help Compiler V4 compiles the file Example.BAK into a hypermedia file (Example.HLP) along with a compressed access file (Example.PH) with the help of Example.HPJ project definition file.


The big win of this tool is that any change in the paper-based version can be automatically reflected into a similar change in the on-line style guide. Having the source files ready, a first generation requires an average time of 20 minutes, due to the manual operations. A re-generation of a previously generated on-line style guide takes at most 10 minutes. The proposed approach can therefore reduce the cost of producing an on-line style guide from a paper-based one, but moreover cuts time in every time the style guide is maintained.
