I'd say we could at least remove the .tgz in favour of the .bz2 ones 
(both are "unix formats"). bzip2 _IS_ available for Win32, but if 
WinZip does not handle bz2, I'd say many users will be unable to handle =

it. [I do not use WinZip, so don't ask me if it supports bz2. :) ]

BTW, I just downloaded the M$ html help workshop and will give the .CHM =

format a try. You have better things to do. ;)
