Actually, there sort of is.

Our company, HyperAct, Inc. has a product named HLPDK/PA - a Write Once, Help
Many product, that can create multiple help databases from one source.

With HLPDK/PA there is a program that translates your WinHelp sources to
HLPDK sources, that can be compiled, using the HLPDK compiler, to HTML

The WinHelp -> HLPDK program can not take you all the way, but it can save
you some of the work ..

The nice thing, is that after you convert it to HLPDK's native HDF format,
you will be able (using the HLPDK compiler) to port it to HTML, Windows
Help, OS/2 Help, DESQview/X, MM Viewer and several dos targets.

An evaluation package of HLPDK is available on in the
/pc/programming directory as, and

For more information about HLPDK/PA please contact
76350.333@Compuserve.Com. (I'm gonna be on the road soon, so this is the
fastest way to get answers about HLPDK or HLPDK/PA).
