Microsoft Compiled HTML Help .CHM:
Microsoft Compiled HTML Help is a proprietary format for help files developed by Microsoft. The format was first used in the release of Windows 98. It contains a set of HTML pages, may also include content with links to pages, a subject index, as well as a base for full-text search on page content. All incoming in .CHM files are compressed by the LZX algorithm. Most often, this format is used to create help files for programs. In addition, the CHM format is also used to create e-books.
The advantage of the format:
The file size is smaller than that of regular HTML - automatic compression (archiving) of the content when compiling a chm file (which significantly reduces the size of the materials used).
All formatting features available for Web pages are used (all the features available in HTML and CSS), i.e. you can insert pictures, gif and flash animations, hyperlinks to the help pages and websites on the Internet, make links to external files, use HTML code, DHTML, ActiveX controls, audio and video, you can apply any formatting to the text.
The search capability is an instant full-text search across the entire help content!
The ability to create a "Favorites" tab (the user will be able to make "bookmarks", remember the help pages that are relevant to him, so that he can find them in an instant).
The ability to create an "Index" (a list of keywords that you can assign to different help sections)
The ability to view the set .chm files as one, with a common content and a subject index
Until recently, editing CHM files was not an easy and time-consuming task. Users had to use special programs (compilers) that did not have a clear graphical interface and with which it was not easy to learn how to work.
