This way looks too complicated in the following case:

I switched off from winhelp in favor of chmhelp - winhelp works somehow, but chmhelp not.
chm content is an simple HTML file, which can be parsered by hands (like xCHM utility does), but if there is a library like mshtml (or msxml) why not use it? The only problem is I am afraid wine's mshtml has E_NOTIMPL in piece of codes looks interesting to me. (I do not understand the architcture of mshtml.dll to be sure). To stop wandering I decided to write a question here.

So the question: can the wine's mshtml (as it is now) be used? I looked for smth like CreateHTMLDocument2(...) but failed.
