I thought Winhelp was ur best bet if you didn't know the browser your user was using..

Here's what cemented my belief:

HTML Help replaced WinHelp in 1997, and the WinHelp team was reassigned to other projects a few years later. Yet WinHelp lives. Joe Welinske, president of WinWriters, noted in his opening speech at the 2002 WinWriters conference that about 45 percent of the market still supports WinHelp 4 and about 6 percent still supports WinHelp 3.1. Though WinHelp is a dead format, it's well known, largely bulletproofed, and should work under versions of Windows for years to come.
