Common Desktop Environment: Help System Author's and Programmer's Guide


Suppose a help volume has six chapters and each chapter is a separate file. The files are: HomeTopic, Metainfo, TOC, Tasks, Reference, and Glossary. The volume.htg file for the help volume includes file entities for each of the six files and a list of entity references that instruct the HelpTag software to process the files.

<!entity HomeTopic              FILE "HomeTopic">
<!entity MetaInformation        FILE "Metainfo">
 <!entity TableOfContents        FILE "TOC">
 <!entity Tasks                  FILE "Tasks">
 <!entity Reference              FILE "Reference">
 <!entity Glossary               FILE "Glossary">
