Microsoft announced support for HTML help about two years ago. HTML help is
definitely where things are going. However, I still prefer WinHelp and still
create WinHelp for on-line help documents. I used PDF for on-line books.
On-line books are easily updateable by the customer and easily printable,
which is important for my customers. I use HTML (+ JavaScript + CSS
depending on the audience) for web sites.

I plan to move to HTML help, certainly, but feel no pressure to do so and
see no benefit at this time; I am not developing for cross-platform
products, my head is only in Windoze.
