Nope. Take it from someone who just spent two weeks learning RTF tokens to
customize a WinHelp template in WebWorks, it's not a pleasant task.
Granted, HTML Help Workshop doesn't support the entire library of RTF
tokens, but the tokens aren't as intuitive as WordPerfect's reveal codes.

I miss them too.
