It sounds like the owners don't want to spend any money on
any other software, no matter what it is. You used to be
able to use Word by itself--using the footnotes and so on
to do what RH does for you automatically--then use the
WinHelp compiler, but I don't know if that's even still an
option. I wonder if that's what they're thinking of?

Of course, you can write your topics in Word, then convert
to PDF--or not--let someone else worry about how to install
it. (Be sure to create a unique template with a few basic
but uniquely-named styles.)

Personally I prefer writing and editing in Word, where I
have all my shortcuts and tool buttons and stuff. But I'm
also really happy that my managers squeezed RH out of the
new budget for me.

IN any case, I think you need to ask the owners a few more
