hi,

what tools are good for creating windows help files?  Right now I'm trying Microsoft Help Workshop, but isn't it a bit old?

Any suggestions welcome.

it may be old, but it works well. i usually use HTML Help Workshop. You can have your help files in .chm format.

Free Tool: ZipGrep

ZipGrep is a utility that can list and search zip (.war, .ear, .jar, etc) archives for text patterns, without the need to extract the archive's contents.

HTML help workshop is more flexible and it allows you to code your pages in html. A lot better looking than the former.
