There's a compiler and reader for MacOS called QuickHelp (from Altura
Software, www.altura.com) that "provides true simultaneous cross-platform
development. Its nearly seamless cross-platform capabilities allow you to
author once and compile your help projects simultaneously on Windows and
the Macintosh." Basically, you take the source RTFs and the HPJ for your
WinHelp project, and compile that to run on a Mac. We use it and are very
satisfied with it.

Although I have seen references to reading Windows help files under
Unix,
I was wondering if there was such an animal for the MacOS.

You see, this morning I was recommending that manual that I love to hate,
the Microsoft Manual of Style for Technical Publications, to an
acquaintance translating Win95J materials on a Mac.
