I am creating an application that I wish to distribute and need to create a professional looking help file.  What are some of the better programs for doing this and how do I tie it in to my VB application.

Thanks but I am looking for something that is not 300-400 bucks.  Free would be ideal, I don't plan on selling my program.

Free and Professional appearing are almost MUTUALLY exclusive.

What's wrong with HTML Help from Microsoft, you can make it look as you want. And its FREE!
The pages are just a collection of Html-files you can create yourself. And the program is exactly like MSDN-Help.
