	I would recommend that anyone interested in this documentation download
it from Anthonys' site since it is combined into a Winhlp32.exe
compatible format.  From what I've seen of the help file generated by the
files there, it appears to be well thought out and fairly straight-forward 
when it comes to navigation.

	The site also has the files ( 
/pub/win-nt/win-32).  However, they don't go together very well when 
one attempts to use the .bat program included at the site itself.

	After downloading and running the .bat file from Anthonys' site, 
everything came together nicely.

	I've also put together an archive based on the data I downloaded from 
Anthonys' site.  My version is a single 4.02M file.  I'd be happy to 
upload it somewhere convenient if anyone has any suggestions.
