I understand that. I have seen great repositories of information dry up
because of this. Folks got tired of infighting and brought the servers
down. I do realize that responding to this adds to the problem.
Thanks for the advice on top posting, I will follow it from now on.
Yes I have a need for offline. I frequently visit spots without access to
internet or even cell reception (Farm Country)
I am actually all set with the version of the file in the installed
version of python.

People will insult you for anything and everything. Sometimes with
good cause... sometimes without. Personally, I respect someone for
being willing to ask for help, rather than thinking "I'm such an
amazing person, I shouldn't need help". None of us is perfect, all of
us are learning.
Though if you want to win favour with the Python community, there are
a few easy things you can do. One is to avoid top-posting: take the
quoted text from the message you're replying to, trim it down to just
the parts you need, and then put your responses underneath.
Top-posting (leaving all the quoted text underneath, and then putting
your response above) tends to be frowned upon in most tech
Regarding your original query - the .CHM file is a downloadable
version of the same documentation that can be viewed on the web. Do
you have a particular need for offline viewing? If not, I would
definitely recommend using the web version; that way, if it gets
updated (eg to clarify some wording or improve an example), you'll get
