ShowHelp with WebBrowser ??

When the user of my application clicks for Help, I would like to be able to display the help text (created with the HTML Workshop) from the .chm file in a tab, similar to the way the help worked in Microsoft Access.    My thoughts are to include a WebBrowser component in the tab.  However, I am not sure how to tell ShowHelp to display the help html in my WebBrowser.

BTW this is using VS2008 in C#.

Any help is appreciated.

Sorry, I don't have a ready made solution ..
Office 2007 (?) dosn't use CHM files - it's Help2 (offline) or AP Help (online). See:
http://www.helpware.net/mshelp2/CollectionWizard/Office12Help.htm

But you may want  download my example (VB2005) application from (see ClickOnce too)
http://www.help-info.de/en/Visual_Basic_2005/vb_2005.htm
or some C' code from:
http://www.help-info.de/download/CSharp_CHM.zip
I  think you cannot show CHM files with a webBrowser control in an easy way. Try context-sensitive help with contextID's and create a CHM Viewer window without Table of contents and index pane when compiling.
