At our company, we have many manuals created in Word. We want to convert some of these documents in to .chm so we can include online help with our software. Many of the software packages I'm looking at require one to convert the word document to RTF and add hard page breaks to separate each topic.

Without getting into a tools war, what can people recommend that I can use to easily create .chm files from Word documents? If money were not an object, I'd probably go with Web Works Pro, from the positive reviews I've seen on it, but I'm trying to find something that won't take up as much of the budget.

Thank you,

Keri Morgret
