My knowledge of OV is too limited to understand how these documents differ
from normal documents.  We did help a few clients migrate OV/400 help
documents from OV to Text Management/38, which continues to be supported.
IBM suggested that they move to Notes, which IMHO was the wrong
recommendation.  They had a green screen application which they needed help
for, and OV was recommended by IBM as the solution in '88.

While I'm on the topic, I don't take every recommendation from IBM as
gospel truth.  A very senior IBM exec said to me many years ago, that if I
don't immediately drop RPG, and start doing all of my programming in SOM
and DSOM, that I would be bankrupt in five years.

We have 2 Officevision documents left (getting close!) that are help
documents.  I.E. they have the special tags and whatnot to be used for
application help.

Has anyone run across a slick way to convert these to another type of
help?  Such as UIM or whatever.
