Master Documents and Model Documents

You can develop virtual documentation for output in both RTF and HTML, using Master Document and Model Document elements. The process for generating HTML virtual documentation differs from that for RTF in two ways:

You use a standard or customized HTML template, which you select in the Style field on the Generate HTML Report dialog; you do not specify or use any templates defined in the element RTFTemplate Tagged Value
You create a package list to select the elements for the report, and not a Model Search (which is defined in the SearchName and SearchValue Tagged Values in the Model Document elements)

Access   Click Document element, then Project | Documentation | HTML Report       ( Shift+F8 ) or
