Hi Geoff!

Go to http://www.shareware.com

search for smartdoc

This utility will print entire help files or extract plain text
from help files.

Alternatively, RoboHelp Office, and perhaps other authoring tools,
provides a help decompiling tool in their bag of tricks.

I've never used any of these, so I can't comment on their effectiveness.
I just know that they exist.
