If the app is being developed in Java, why not go with JavaHelp? If
you've developed HTML Help, you can develop a JavaHelp system - either
natively or with a tool like HelpBreeze or RoboHelp (although they tend
to put a lot of proprietary garbage in).

Check out http://java.sun.com/products/javahelp/. JavaHelp comes as
part of the JDK, so you're development team probably has the indexer,
viewer, and other tools aleady available. I've had excellent results
with JavaHelp. Much "lighter" than HTML help and WinHelp. JavaHelp it
deployed in a .jar file (basically a .zip file) rather than .chm or .hlp
file, which can both be extremely fat.

PC Magazine gives RoboHelp Office 2002 five stars - a perfect score!
"The ultimate developer's tool for designing help systems. A product
no professional help designer should be without." Check out RoboHelp at
