Have you checked with WinWriters? Contact them - Joe Welinske may still have copies
of _Developing Online Help for Windows_ (version for Windows 3.1):

WinWriters
206/285-2605
CIS: 71640,3260

To Chou's list I would add:

_Designing and Writing Online Documentation, Second Ed._ by William Horton, Wiley, ISBN
0-471-30635-5 - A good book for learning the basics of help design.

_The Developer's Guide to Winhelp.exe_ by Jim Mischel, Wiley, ISBN 0-471-30325-9 - Has
the "techie" stuff, info on using macros, dll's, etc. Good for trouble-shooting and
trying out new features.

I hope this helps.
