The help conent will need to be chunked much smaller than is typically done
in WinHelp and not done at all in some HTML Help. You would have to move
from:

Barry: Bio paragraphs
--end-- <several pages latter>

To something more like:

Barry: Born: <data><page>
School: <data><page>
Work 1: <data><page>
...


It's not just a matter of serving the same content into a different DTD. WAP
pages are so small that any linear text delivered would be hard to read.
Further, WAP pages are not going to have a standard page size. WAP will go
to cell phone screens, and Palm Pilot sized screens.

The information will need to fragmented into smaller units, and forward
references will need to be added to tie those fragments together.
