HTML Help (.chm) or just HTML To JavaHelp

Does anyone know of a good tool for this? I want to create a java help
set for the JDK1.4.2 or any other 1.4. I would like to put this up for
Netbeans. I have a chm file which was created with HTML2Help, and that
has served me well on Windows, but I'm a Linux fan, and would like to be
able to have my simliar environment, but would also like to put this up
as a help set for Netbeans users.

Any help is appreciated,

Wade

There are probably HTML authoring tools already supporting this but most of
the configuration files for WinHelp and JavaHelp are XML format so I think
simple XSLT templates transforming between the two would do the trick.

HTML Help?

HTML Indexer is still the easiest way to create and maintain real indexes
for web sites, intranets, HTML Help, JavaHelp, and other HTML documents.

Yip, I meant HTMLHelp - the Index and TOC files are XML format and the main
project file is text format. I remember converting in-house XML
documentation to both HTMLHelp and JavaHelp using XSLT and it was
straightforward.
