I need someone to produce the HTML based Help files for a Web Based application. I will provide you with a link to the demo application so that you can review it before you bid make a bid.

It consists of perhaps 10 to 15 different help files for the different areas of the application.

It will require you to learn a bit about the application and how it works so that you can write meaningful help text.

It will Require you to provide me with some examples of previous writing that you have done.

Complete Help Text in HTML format. Properly formatted so that it can be upgraded and maintained by me after you finish.

Complete copyrights to all work purchased.

The HTML must run in both IE 5.0+ and Netscape 4.7+

Must be 100% finished and received by buyer on:
Jul 15, 2002 EDT
Deadline legal notes: All times are expressed in the time zone of the site EDT (UT - 5). If the buyer omitted a time, then the deadline is 11:59:59 PM EDT on the indicated date.

Remember that contacting the other party outside of the site (by email, phone, etc.) on all business projects < $500 (before the buyer's money is escrowed) is a violation of both the software buyer and seller agreements. We monitor all site activity for such violations and can instantly expel transgressers on the spot, so we thank you in advance for your cooperation. If you notice a violation please help out the site and report it. Thanks for your help.
All monetary amounts on the site are in United States dollars.

Hello Brian,

I&'m interested in bidding on your html help files project. I&'m an English teacher and freelance programmer with many years of experience writing documentation, technical papers, etc. I have completed a number of html help projects through RAC as well as for local clients.

I&'ve enclosed a sampling of my most recent project - just unzip these files to a directory and you can view the pages in your browser. In this particular project, the help page opens on the right side of the screen to emulate Microsoft help. In most of my help projects, the contents page is called from the main website page and the others are usually called from specific areas. Every page contains links to related topics and the contents pages, so users can navigate the help system as a subsystem without loosing their place on the web page they invoked the help system from. As you can see, we can incorporate graphics, logos, etc.

I&'m quite experienced at reviewing an application and subsequently developing the appropriate topics, using a consistent and meaningful vocabulary as well as proper grammar and semantics. Some of my past help projects have included up to 90 pages of online documentation!

If you are interested, please take a moment to review my online resume and client comments regarding my performance on their projects. I have also written two articles for RAC, which can be viewed at:

Lastly, I want to let you know that I will work closely with you to meet your needs. I&'m an excellent communicator and I am extremely flexible when it comes to clients - meeting your deadline presents no problems whatsoever!

Best Regards,

Michael Sharp

P.S. - Please forward a link to where I might find the site details when preparing my bid.
