This is quite possibly off-topic, but I found it interesting enough to 
pass on. 

For those who don't know it, ForeFront make a software package 
called ForeHelp for creating Windows Help and HTML-based Help. 
Their latest version is promoting a new implementation called 
InterHelp that (using Java applets) is equaly viewable in Netscape 
and Internet Explorer. 

Check out the demo at:

and you will see a reasonable HTMLHelp implementation. Now, 
check out the base directory address in IE5

.... and you will see an XML file. It even has a DTD. 

Does anyone know anything more about this application?
