Look at this page :

basics of writing a help-file and you don't need any fancy help-file writer. just word in enough. Althoug I recommend a help-file writer if you intend to write much help-files.

PS. you can also put html-files as help-files.

Search altavista for helpmatic pro!
that is a shareware help file editor which I have been using for quite some time now!

It's easy, quick to learn, and kinda cheap!

Using this software is like coding HTML, and it will translate everything you do into a RTF file.
