The older help system still exists behind the scenes for (I believe) legacy purposes. It still supports old style help documentation in packages (but not for the Mathematica system itself--that's the province of the new Help Viewer/Mathematica Documentation Center. You can therefore still create old style help documentation for a package and see it through the old help browser. You can access this from the Mathematica Documentation Center by clicking on the "Installed Add-Ons" link in the Mathematica Documentation Center's front page (lower right hand side). You can still create Old style documentation with Author Tools. However Author Tools now does nor ship with its palettes (I am not sure why) but the functional interface is still there. This is how I am currently creating documentation for A WorkLife FrameWork: http://scientificarts.com/worklife/ . I will transition to the new style documentation in the release after the upcoming one. I belive that tools for creating new style documentation will ship later on when its ready. --David http://scientificarts.com/worklife/ On May 13, 6:22 am, msvensso... at yahoo.com wrote: > Hello, > > how can I add the documentation for user packages into the Mathematica > 6 help system?
