Hi All,

  I've spent considerable time setting up an architecture using XML and XSL
in order to produce a help-system for one of our software products.  I feel
using this system is much better than using a WYSIWYG editor because it
allows the writer to concentrate on content and not on formatting.
Formatting can be done by a different person or at a different time via XSL

  I've pitched this idea to my manager and he likes it but when we sent the
whole package of to our head-office abroad for translation into different
languages, they didn't like it.  They prefer using a WYSIWYG editor
(specifically ROBOHELP).

  My gut feel is XML is better even tho a WYSIWYG editor allows you to see
results immediately without compiling or anything.

  Does anyone have any thoughts about this?  Am I right or wrong?  If so,

Thanks for your help,
