The only thing I DO NOT agree with here is Michelle's assumption that any
CHM CAN be used in place of a HLP. CHMs DO NOT provide context-sensitive
HLP files do.
Is this the issue as to why the CHM is unacceptable here?

Subject: Re: .chm to hlp?
Forgive me if I sound naive, but this identical situation happened to me
earlier this year. My developer INSISTED he could not use a .chm and needed
an .hlp file.
However, after my husband researched the situation (he's a sw developer too)
he found out that you can implement a .chm in any 32-bit application.
Soooo... talk to that there developer of yours.
