      Quoting Tom Burns at OFBIZ-4869

      This is a status update just to let anyone who is interested know that this item is being worked on.

      I started out using the OFBiz structure for help docs but after a while I needed/wanted something more expressive.
      Here is what I wound up using for development:

      Java Help System http://java.net/projects/javahelp/content

      DocBook 5: The Definitive Guide

      DocBook XSL: The Complete Guide

      Help Master - FE for managing java help files. Best feature drag and drop TOC creates TOC matching file folder structure. Convenient launcher for viewing & testing. http://www.halogenware.com/software/helpmaster.html

      XML Mind XML Editor - Free Personal Edition is far better then editing in Eclipse. download from http://www.xmlmind.com/xmleditor/download.shtml

      Tutorial - DocBook editing with XML Mind XML Editor. Worth going through http://www.xmlmind.com/xmleditor/tutorial.html

      Read Me First style guide from Sun (cost from Amazon 1 cent + shipping)

      Attached are some screen shots of the results.
      Every screen is/will be documented in a similar structure. This is as much for defining requirements and testing as for help. More work but worth it.

      The screenshots show a Java Help format generated using DocBook XSL. This will likely not be the final presentation format.

      Note the Performance Review screen shots do not match the trunk. There is a bug in update screen and I did some clean up of labels and drop-down list. There are issues like this all through the application so I did not want to get bogged down with patches at this time.
