The thread started as a WinHelp vs. WinHelp2000 question, with Sean
suggesting HTMLHelp instead to accommodate Vista. It's not about the
Internet or Web pages or Macs or alternative browsers or the W3C or...

be displayed (whether you approve or not) by a Microsoft application.
All discussions of browser share, open source software, Macintoshes,
standards compliance, etc., are beside the point. But thanks for
