[Wine] A visual basic 6 program using html help

Yes, I have gecko installed. In my flailing around, I installed another
program (textpad) under wine and it asked me to install gecko so I did.
Help does work in textpad and I think it is HTML help - at least it
looks like it.
That has not fixed my HTML help problem, however. Maybe there is
another way I should be invoking the help in my program.

you have gecko for wine installed? I play some games that require
displaying a webpage in html format embedded in the game and I can't
remember how it happened, but something prompted me to install a browser
for wine to use. I said yes and the html works.
