FWIW, I use Wextech Helpsite 1.5 for this very purpose. It does a
reasonable first pass, but you will need to use a decent HTML editor to
clean up the results. For example, it formats numbered and bulletted lists
absolutely (rather than use <li> tags).

The HTML Help interface can be either an ActiveX control or a Java applet
(Microsoft include the applet in the latest version of the HTML Help
Workshop -- see http://www.microsoft.com/workshop/author/). The Helpsite
templates use the ActiveX control by default and you'll need to edit them to
use the Java applet.

HTH,
