I'm happy with ForeHelp. I haven't created HTML Help with it, but I have
created WinHelp, Web Help (HTML help for browsers, called "interhelp" by
ForeHelp) and JavaHelp.

It has a number of useful utilities to help speed up help development, and
has lots of flexibility - often with multiple ways to accomplish the same
task. If you check the archives, you'll find lots of discussion on the
various HATs.

If you have more specific questions about ForeHelp, feel free to contact me
