You may have already gotten responses on this, as I'm several days behind on
digest, but I've just published a CD-ROM with about 75 or so forms (this
same solution would have also worked on the Internet or an Intranet.) The
bulk of the manual was done in WebHelp using RoboHelp, but that is
unnecessary for the forms part--any old HTML page with links to the forms
would work. In the HTML code, just link to a Word form (e.g., [a
href="wordform1.doc"]Word Form[a] (brackets used instead of <>). It then
launches the Word form in a "hybrid" browser--sort of a cross between
Internet Explorer and Word (the user does have to have Word on their system
for this solution.) If you use Word's "form" feature and lock the form,
users cannot edit the format of the form--they can simply fill in the blanks
you've provided and not touch anything else.

For a brief example, take a look at , click on
the Order the Book link, and select the Microsoft Word 6.0/95 Order Form.

Does this sound like a solution for you? Just let me know if you have any
