I use HTML for my help files and a little html viewer (based on the Tkinter 
Text widget I found inside the PTUI tool (check the vaults)  This is OK for 
basic help but does not support images.....  I also use the PMW balloon 
widget (tooltips)  for anything that requires a little explaining but not 
full blown help ...
