Well I never thought I'd see this on the list! I am a technical writer for
Sterling (formerly Synon), who makes COOL:Plex (formerly Obsydian).

The included WinHelp-creation tool is pretty rudimentary, and we definitely
recommend that you use a third-party application. My coworker wrote a guide on
how to use a third-party tool. I'll make sure that she sees this post, so she
can send you a copy of it.
