I don't think you're likely to find one. The market is too small for any of
the major publishers (Que, Sams, IDG, etc.) to consider publishing a
The closest you're likely to find is a general book about writing Windows
help. I have a decent book called _Developing Online Help for Windows_
(Boggan, Farkas, and Welinske, SAMS Publishing, 1993, ISBN 0-672-30230-6).
My boss's bookshelf contains a major update to that book, _Developing Online
Help for Windows 95_ (Boggan, Farkas, and Welinske, International Thompson
Computer Press, 1996, ISBN 185032-211-2). She also has _Designing Windows
95 Help: A Guide to Creating Online Documents_ (Deaton and Zubak, Que
Corporation, 1996, ISBN 0-7897-0362-9).
