HTML-help help: where do I start?

I'm going to be taking over some HTML-help files with
a very tight deadline - I start my new job next week,
and have 3 days in it before I go on vacation, and the
deadline is shortly after I get back.

Can anyone recommend a good book to get me started on
understanding HTML-help? I'm pretty knowledgable about
WinHelp, but haven't worked in HTML Help before.

We'll be using Microsoft's HTML Help Workshop and
probably Front Page as the HTML editor (although I may
bring in my copy of DreamWeaver...)

I figure that the best way to take the files out of
HDK and into HTML Help will be to simply put the Word
files into HTML - any comments about this?

now for the hard question: one help file will be able
to be called from 2 different applications. Is there
a way to make the text in the title bar change
depending on where the file is called from?
