Yep. RoboHelp has such a decompiler, as does Doc-to-Help. I've used D2H's
and it works. But my favorite is written by Olson Software in New Zealand.
It's been awhile since I needed it, so the software is gone from my system
and the name is gone from my memory. Jog over to and leave a message for Olson, if you
want to investigate that package.
