Melissa London wondered: <<I'm looking for a free or low-cost
solution for creating a CHM file of a style guide. Pretty basic

links to other resources. That's about it.>>

One word (sort of <g>):

If you have any specific questions once you've found a potentially
appropriate tool, someone here can undoubtedly provide the answers.
