What do you mean by "(recursively)" in printing a topic?

AFAIK, there's no "export" action in the help system to export or
otherwise generate an offline readable module.

I can see a potential work around for your situation:
I'm looking at Eclipse 3.4 M5, and if you select a topic, you can use
the Print icon that's above the table of contents to generate a single
HTML page that contains that topic and its subtopics. It's *not* the
Print icon that's above the topic itself (on the right hand side)--it's
a Print icon with a little black down arrow that's in the left hand
frame above the full table-of-contents tree.

When you press the black down arrow of that Print button, select "Print
selected topic and all subtopics" choice. This will build a single HTML
page that contains all of those topics and sends that page to your
system browser.

Once that page appears in your system browser, then I expect you can use
your browser's menu File->Save Web Page option and save it as an
offline file that you can send to your managers.

Would you give that a try and let us know what you think?
