You can use the help workshop to generate .chm files. You can write
them in HTML so you can control formatting and the such.

You haven't specified the format of the Help file you want to create, so
I'll assume, like Raymond, that you want it in CHM (Compiled HTML) format,
which is the most common.

"PocketCHM Pro" is the most user-friendly program I have used, for CHM
generation. You can find it at It has a trial version available.

Although, internally, it uses the HTML Help compiler provided by Microsoft
in the HTML Help workshop mentioned by Raymond.
