I think it may be time to show everybody exactly what can be done with
your system.  Get a few style sheets together (one for full details,
maybe one for headings only.. whatever).  You know;  show off.

Hi All,

  I've spent considerable time setting up an architecture using XML and
in order to produce a help-system for one of our software products.  I
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

  I've pitched this idea to my manager and he likes it but when we sent
whole package of to our head-office abroad for translation into
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
results immediately without compiling or anything.

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

Thanks for your help,
