You should compare the possibilities of OS/2 help and Winhelp. You will find
that OS/2 help (IPF) is quite limited compared to Winhelp, e.g. in the
typographical fields. The most important extension OS/2 help had over Winhelp
3.1 was the full-text search capability but that has been added to Winhelp 4
(for Win95).

Even if you should manage to find conversion tools you would have to cope with
some conceptual differences.

BTW: Last year at CeBIT I searched the IBM OS/2 booth about someone who could
tell me about a few good authoring tools for OS/2 help. The most constructive
answer I got: "Good question..."
