I'm still interested in this issue too but I'm struggling to find time so far.

My feeling is that U++ needs a conventional help system orthogonal to the existing help system and I was hoping to think of a way of sharing the doc pages between each. As I've probably said more than once, the information you need to get started with U++ is hard to find and I think a quick start section that explains the basics of theIDE, setting up a compiler (what compilers are supported?) and building a simple application would help. Plus a help button for the "set main package dialog" ...

I suspect the reference topics could be linked to a second help system automatically but the "documentation" topics would need manual linking to the second help system. Also, it would be nice if the help system could have the attractive appearance that pspad help has
plus "history", user bookmarks, better searching...


I think there is little needed to achieve that.

I guess, having such manual on www is as good as anything else (but we can easily provide PDF export too).

All it takes is somebody brave starting the content page in uppweb...
