I've just finished the Win95 version of the Boy Scout Requirements and
the Guide to Safe Scouting. (I did it first because, quite frankly,

When the version for 3.x is ready (probably by the weekend) it will
be available as
Again, note that I said IT ISN'T THERE YET. You're welcome to try
until it does show up.
If you're running Windows 95 or later builds of Windows NT 3.5x with
the 4.0 WinHelp engine, I <strongly> suggest grabbing the Windows 95
version over the 3.x version. The 4.0 spec is much better for doing
this kind of a project and I think you'll agree that the finished

users will not be able to use the Windows 95 version. Let's make

THE WINDOWS 95 VERSION WILL NOT RUN UNDER WINDOWS 3.X. So please
don't download it to your 3.x system and then yell at me when it
doesn't work. I know it doesn't work. That's why I said so. :)
Hmm, I also doubt seriously whether it will work under OS/2, either.
Better stick to the 3.x version for OS/2.
