I don't know if konqueror or mozilla have plugins to CHM files, but there are in linux severals applications:

X: xchm.
qt: kchmviewer.
gtk: ghmsee.
gtk-gnome: gnochm.
CHM Decompressor: archmage.

About MHT, in the wiki it says:

"As of version 3.5.7 (released 2007-05-02), KDE's Konqueror web browser does not support MHTML files. However, it does include a feature for saving web pages as single files ("web archives", file extension .war) which are actually gzipped tarballs. (but there is a side project mhtconv that allows to use MHTML with Konqueror for both 3.x and 4.x KDE branches)"

Moreover, kmhtConvert perhaps can help you.

P.D: I don't talk english very well... sorry.


chm, kde, konqueror
