I'd take a diskette of the online help file (esp. if it is WinHelp) and
allow the potential client to review it *while you are sitting there.*

I've even gone so far as to make a copy of the disk and leave it with
them. Why not trreat it as if it were a writing sample?

And another interesting wrinkle - have you thought about doing your resume
as a help file? This has some fascinating ppossibilities - scanned in
pictures of documents, copies or snippets of help files or documents
you've written, more details about companies or jobs etc. You could put a
lot more into an interactive resume than you could fit onto the standard
