I do development in a macOS (aka: OS X) environment and am used to having to deal with the odd tool or utility that doesn't work just right and fall back to a Windows VM to solve the problem.
I recently started doing some NMSDK development and found that the key reference document for NMSDK (the HTML based Reference Manual) has problems with most modern browsers. I had to spin through 6 browsers until I found one that would open and display the NMSDK Ref Manual properly ... FWIW: in this order: 1) Safari (on macOS) ; 2) Chrome (on macOS) ; 3) Firefox (on macOS) ; 4) Chrome (on Win7) ; 5) IE (on Win7) ; 6) Firefox (on Win7). It wasn't until I got to Firefox on Win7 that I could see the table of contents under the Contents tab. Yippee. Then I realized that was a pretty old version of Firefox (~ 1.13.x) and I inadvertently updated it to the latest Firefox and now I find this verson of Firefix on Win7 doesn't even display the TOC.
Has anyone else found a way to get this documentation visable with Chrome or Firefox or any more recent browsers?
FWIW ... here is the specific document source reference (accessing the SDK_help.htm within) I'm having the issues with but the basic NMSDK SDK_help.htm (inside the main SDK itself) has the same problem as far as I see.

This is a filed problem under BURT 1029694.
Use direct path to access the docs on the dowloaded files:

I now see the path's you are pointing out which are amoung the documentation downloads available. There is the NMSDK itself which has a /docs path under it. Then under the support site's Documentation area, there are three documentation sets. You have to be alert when on the page for NMSDK Documentation page to even realize there are three sets of document and you should scroll down to see them all. The first two (as they are listed at mysupport.netapp.com) are for .NET and Java. It is the 3rd set of documentatioon, for the "NetApp Manageability SDK", which contains the ones you point out ... and are very readable under modern browsers. Just confusing I think.
