Internationalized Online Help

If your product is intended for an international audience, then providing online help in the user's native language is important. The Help System supports the authoring and displaying of online help in virtually any language.

When you process a help volume to create run-time help files, the HelpTag software must be told what language and character set you used to author your files. The language and character set information is also used to determine the proper fonts for displaying the help volume.
