Master Documents and Model Documents

You can develop virtual documentation for output in both printable document and web page formats, using Master Document and Model Document elements. The process for generating web virtual documentation differs from that for printable documentation in two ways:

·You use a standard or customized HTML template, which you select in the Style field on the Publish as HTML 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 Package | Documentation | Publish as HTML       (Shift+F8) or
Project Browser | Right-click on Document element | Documentation | HTML Report
