      Thanks to Mr. Levin and Don Campbell for a great presentation.

      Question please?

      I'm involved in technical writing and have been active in building and integrating MS1 and MS2Help into the 2002, 2003 and 2005 Visual Studio IDE's. I have heard that we will also be able to build and integrate customized Help (called AP2) in Office 2007, which may follow a similar format to that of MSHelp2.

      Listening to Mr. Levin, this would certainly useful to Office users, especially if this customized help could be enabled across the whole Office app spectrum.

      Any thoughts or info available on this at this point?

      Hi Frank,
      I need to look into this for you.  I need to look into the customized help support in Office and I'll get back to you.
