I learned the basics from the help file for Windows 3.1 help. Using the
QuickStart, I was able to get working on my first help system within a day.
While this is an older version of help for 16-bit programs, it provides an
excellent look at the underpinnings of Windows help systems, and it will
help you feel more comfortable using your HAT.

Ask, and I'll be happy to send you a copy.
