Results from the HELIOS External Spectrometer on kaon production in 200 GeV/A S + W and p + W collisions are presented. The K π ratios are compared with results from a lower beam energy and are found to be remarkably similar. Evidence for secondary production of K+ by meson-baryon rescattering is reviewed. Our results at y = 1.0-1.5 are compared with neutral strange particle results at midrapidity.
