WebHelp is a form of online help that consists of a series of web pages (XHTML format). Its advantages include platform independence, the ability to update content continuously, it can be viewed using a regular web browser, and a comments component can be embedded in the output to provide an efficient way to interact with users.

The WebHelp Classic system is designed for desktop systems and it features a familiar tri-pane layout. You can use the system to publish DocBook documents and it also includes a WebHelp Skin Builder that provides a simple online tool to help you visually customize the look and feel of your WebHelp output.

Oxygen XML WebHelp Classic plugin is a standalone product that requires its own license key. It provides support for transforming DocBook resources into WebHelp output by running a transformation script outside of Oxygen XML Editor/Author. This is especially useful if you want to automate the output process.
