Help file Feb 7, 2011

The answer is in the text you copied: this is a standard help file with footnotes.
The tool to be used depends on the format of the file, Word or TagEditor are usually fine. What are you client's requirements? What did you agree?

If you are not familiar with this format, you should find detailed explanations of the different footnotes in Google, for example here: http://mc-computing.com/languages/delphi/ComponentHelp.html
