CHM files and Open Sourc

Hi all,

I really like .chm format over .pdf for ebooks.
How do I create .chm files, preferably with Open source tools?

You can use Microsoft HTML Help Workshop tool in Windows to create CHM files. Not open source, but it's free compiler for download and use. CHM is Microsoft's proprietary format and I doubt whether there are any open-source tools to create it.
