For WinHelp 2000, you have to distribute a DLL file along with your

If you are creating a new help project, have you considered creating
HTML-based help, given the awkwardness with WinHelp and Vista?

Subject: Standard WinHelp vs. WinHelp 2000

I'm working on a WinHelp project in RoboHelp. I have the option of
compiling the project as a standard WinHelp file or in WinHelp 2000
format. The WinHelp 2000 format displays the TOC, index, and search
windows to the left of the help topic. This makes navigation easier.

Here's my questions:

* Besides the easier navigation, are there any other major differences
between standard WinHelp and WinHelp 2000?

* Has anyone encountered any problems with WinHelp 2000?

* Any compelling reasons to use standard WinHelp instead of WinHelp

Thanks for the input!
