Fabasoft products provide the possibility to include online help and context sensitive help in the Fabasoft web browser environment. This can be done by providing ZIP files and CHM files or property descriptions via software components.
ZIP is a widespread format for the compression of files. Thus, HTML files can be provided in a ZIP file. CHM is the abbreviation for “Compiled HTML Manual”. The advantage of this help file format in comparison to pure HTML is the fact that it is a compressed format. Additionally, this format provides extended functionality in the form of navigational aids like trees.
