Look at MIF2Go, from omsys. In addition to supporting multiple help
formats, it also
provides a nice .rtf filter and other bells & whistles. I've found it
easier to work with and
less buggy than webworks, but it isn't for everyone.

Also... if you were just thinking of converting the files to an online
media without editing or reformatting them for online help, I'd go to
.pdf before I'd go to any help format because it supports your
existing book model better.
