Is the content in flat, non-dynamic HTML or does it require a server
(for server side includes, that sort of thing)?

If the former, then that question has basically be answered. If the
latter, then you could OEM a lightweight web server (there are free
ones) and deploy the content onto it during the installation process.
Having a web server as part of the install gives you alot more options
for developing samples and other demo content, too.
