    I'm not sure how possible it would be the automatically convert the docs
    to CHM format. Details of the spec are at:


    but it's well above me to implement a compiler :(

    All I did was import all the HTML files into Microsoft's HTML Help
    compiler and add a contents. The full text search is generated by the
    help compiler.

    Perhaps there is some good way of automating the process? CHM help would
    be nice because 1) Its the native help format on Windows and 2) it
    allows full text search. It also reduces the size of the documentation
    (just the en-US) from 923KB to 527KB which is nice :)

    forward this message to there, that'd be great.
