Hi Bob,

A good resource for you might be , a vendor-independent web site for tech writers and help authors that are considering a wide-variety of options for building HTML-based Help systems. There's extensive information in the How To section devoted to converting WinHelp to HTML Help. Let me know if I can be of any service.

Best regards,
