<<As soon as I find an easy way to access an .xls or a .pdf file from a .chm
file, life will be great.>>
If you are willing to distribute the .xls or .pdf file to the same folder as
the .chm, why not just use the HTML Help ActiveX control's Shortcut command?
This still hasn't been crippled for the local machine.
