No more than any other missing feature is. WinZip isn't special.

Somebody needs to implement HTML help :) We have actually started on this,
there is itss.dll which is partly (fully?) implemented and hhctrl.ocx but
that's just stubs. It's not much use without an HTML control, Mike has
done some good work on this lately with making it auto-download the
control if it's not present.

So it's being worked on slowly. It definitely should not block 0.9, we
already have way too much stuff piled onto that release.

thanks -mike
