Seems like what you need is lightweight client-side web help along the
lines of that generated by RoboHelp, Flare, FrameMaker, Help & Manual,
Doc-To-Help, and many other commercial tools. Open-source tools for
doing this are mostly unfinished and abandoned.

You might be able to use Pandoc to convert rST to DocBook, then use
DocBook WebHelp.

http://docbook.sourceforge.net/release/xsl/1.76.1/webhelp/docs/content/ch01.html

Do you have to use rST? It seems like the wrong choice if you're
delivering docs for installed software.
