On Microsoft HTML Help Workshop

The Microsoft HTML Help compiler is part of the HTML Help Workshop of Microsoft. This program compiles a project (.hhp), contents (.hhc), index (.hhk), topic (.html) and other (.gif, .jpeg, etc.) files into the microsoft htmlhelp file (.chm).

HTML Help Workshop is an environment for creating and managing help projects and their related files. But: the HHW HTML editor only lets you edit raw HTML. We only use the compiler part of this tool. To make the help authoring as easy as possible, you don't need to worry about the just HTML, we extended the Help Generator with a HTML Help editor.
