I manage some sites with multiple WinHelp files (read through a WinHelp reader
product "Hypershelf"- details below). My approach is more like beta testing
than proofreading. Still I am usually working with information that has been
signed off in the traditional way before the document is converted (using HDK)

Hypershelf can print a topic and its sub-topics, it takes out the WinHelp page
breaks. This printed copy is marked up with any changes and forwarded to the
person who maintains the project files.
