Comments on .chm files.
PT: "Yes. MS issue a HTML compiler. You can take a web site and turn it into a chm file quite easily. You have to dig around in MSDN to find the package to download though. It used to be on the Platform SDK disk."
With NT (?) and earlier, Microsoft's help format was .hlp, rather than .chm. Here [L7 ] are products which run under Linux (among other platforms) and understand .hlp's (never-publicly-documented?) format.
