Uh, oh.  Well, my thought was as follows: people are already 
annoucing making PDF versions, which are a much greater 
potential harm to to the number of sales of a printed book.With a 
good pdf file, I can get to my local prinshop and get a perfect 
bounded book back within half an hour.

On the other hand, a MS HTML help file is of little use other than 
having a compact, searchable file which fits well into a 
development environment on Windows. Frankly, I can't see how 
these could do any harm to selling your book. To the contrary; I 
tend to beleive that having a properly indexed and tightly 
integrated online format might even might help selling the book. 

For example; I have HTML help versions _and_ printed copies of 
the - outdated - Zope docs, and one of each from the actual 
howto-collection, and I'm using them both.
