A customer who is downloading a doc is probably trying to get
something done, and probably already annoyed that they have to consult
the docs to figure out how.

If a customer downloads a .chm and it doesn't work, they're not
necessarily going to know what to do.

Same goes for the presales factor, if you manage to persuade a
potential customer to download your docs, you don't want to put any
obstacles in their path.
