Question What software to use in order to create CHM files from a local HTML site

Dear all,

Currently I'm working on a local site (HTML, JavaScript with frames
<frameset> etc.) I would like to convert it to a CHM file (if possible).

I'm using Ubuntu 8.10 with Gnome, any suggestion about an appropriate
free software?

Thanks in advance

Computing being my job, and having some experience with web sites' building, I can't help saying this:
— Are you aware that relying on Javascript is bad for accessibility? Not that you can't use it, but the same features should be also available without Javascript.
— Same for the frames: they are bad for accessibility. Besides, they are deprecated in xhtml, which is the current state-of-the-art HTML (until HTML5 is ready).
— Finally, CHM is all but a standard format, although I can understand how it can be convenient to have one single file instead of a bunch of HTML, JS, CSS… files.

Well… to (kind of) answer your question, I don't know of any such tool, but (I'm not sure) I think I've seen a firefox extension once to save a whole page as a single file.

I hope this helps.
