HMXZ or HMXP?

Help+Manual Help stores your projects as a collection of plain text XML files, the code of which looks a little like HTML. You don't need to know anything at all about XML to use the program.

If you are using the Professional or Server version of Help+Manual you can save your project in single-file compressed mode (HMXZ) or uncompressed XML mode (HMXP). Single-file mode saves all your project files in a single compressed file with the extension .hmxz. Uncompressed mode saves your project as a collection of files and folders with a project file with the extension .hmxp. Uncompressed XML projects must always be saved in an empty folder.
