Question: Writing documentation for the command-line version of Maple

Dear fellow forum members,

I have decided to write a simple package for Maple. No decent package is complete without documentation.

I succeeded at adding the documentation into a .hdb file by virtue of the makehelp function, and this documentation works flawlessly in the GUI version of Maple (called "xmaple" on my Linux system), but any attempts to view it in the command-line version (called, simply, "maple" on Linux) result in the XML source code of the original worksheet (.mw) being displayed instead of nicely formatted output (as with built-in Maple topics, such as LinearAlgebra).

Does anybody have an idea how to make my documentation accessible to command-line Maple users, too?

Thanks in advance. :-)
