Be mystified no longer. MS ships a help application for the Mac as well. As
for shipping it with the mac application, it would probably be a good idea.
(A better idea would have been to write it in Apple Guide, as it's a far
better help system and you can be sure every mac user with a recent OS will
have it.) You see, there are a lot of Mac users who don't have any MS
applications on their system (my home system, for example) so wouldn't have
the help application.

If JCI had an opinion on this, they'd hire someone else to deliver it.
