Why don't you just author WinHelp directly in Frame?

You can convert Frame directly to WinHelp-compatible RTF using the
MIF2RTF tool from Omni Systems (meaning no clean-up in Word -- in fact
you don't even need Word for this), then create/compile your Help
project file in HCW (available for free from Microsoft). You can do
macros, jumps, keywords, etc.

I've used Robohelp and Forehelp. If you didn't already have Frame, I'd
say they'd be fine. However, if you already have Frame, why buy and
learn unnecessary tools.
