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.

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