Help File Template

I am about to set up my online knowledge base (help files)in CD and I was wondering if there are any templates available for this.

The simpler the better as I am a virtual HTML moron.

Thanks

Try Darren Collin's template for non-profits - It may have what you want with some minor tweaking.

www.dwreview.com uses Darren's template and there is a link for the download.

I am creating a somewhat similar website for volunteer teachers (Peace Corp) and am using Darren's templates.

Hope this helps.

There was an article written about creating windows help files with citydesk.  I found it linked from TK's site.  See above

If you're using the suggested template and have any questions feel free to drop me a note.

FYI:
I'm just in the middle of writing a program that'll parse the KeyWords you enter using CityDesk and create the KeyWord Objects you need for HTML Help WorkShop. It effectivly removes "Step 4 - Finishing Up" (which is a bear) from the how-to article. Not exactly sure how it'll be distibuted yet, quite probably freeware, we'll see.

One other thing. FogCreek did exacly what you want to do (at least what I think you want to do) with the CityDesk help files. How they did it is here: http://www.fogcreek.com/CityDesk/news/entries/2002/August/22.html.
