I don't know.  Have you used a .chm file for Python docs (one has been
separately downloadable for years, but not from python.org)?  The display is
identical to what you'd see if you used IE to browse the HTML docs directly
today, so it's unclear what it is about "html docs" you might prefer.  The
prime usability gain is that the .chm file supports full-text search across
the whole set of Python docs, including Boolean (AND, OR, NOT) and proximity
(NEAR) searches.
