Robohelp or ePublisher?

Robohelp or ePublisher?

Robohelp or ePublisher?

For many years I've been using FrameMaker 6, Adobe Acrobat 4, and WebWorks Publisher 7.

The documentation source is a set of 4 different documents (different FM books, 1500 pages in total), with links/cross references between them, and lots of text set as conditional.

The generated output is pdf, chm and html, in different versions depending on product (conditional text settings.)

For several reasons it's time to upgrade, and I'm of course considering FrameMaker 10. The question is if I should use Robohelp or Webworks ePublisher (or other) product to generate the different formats.

I did download a trial version of Robohelp, but had no time to evaluate as much as needed.

Can I use/convert my old WebWorks 7 projects in current ePublisher? (Would save me lots of time.)

Anyone here who has used both products? Any recommendations?
