My impression from Char's post last week is that WinHelp *is* dead, that it
will *not* be available *at all* with Vista, even as a download. See below.
What are other TWers doing that have the majority (or at least "some") of
their projects in WinHelp?

The WinHelp engine will not be included in Microsoft Vista. In addition, the
engine will not be available for download or redistribution.
(NOTE: I announced this yesterday on HATT. To clarify one possible question:
this supersedes all previous announcements.)

it would be unwise to move an existing project away from WinHelp right now,
just because of Vista.
