<!-- MAIN CONTENT -->
<hr/>
<p>The <strong><?php echo ucwords($project); ?></strong> project is a protocol project.</p>
<p>When installed, you get in you browser a new protocol &quot;ms-its:&quot; (perhaps you have already seen it when using Microsoft stuff).</p>
<p>This pseudo protocol is used by Microsoft to read its InfoTech Storage file, mainly winhelp files (extension chm), but also cabinet file (extension cab) and reader file (extension lit).</p>
<a name="restrictions"/>
<p>There are many restrictions in version 0.1:</p>
<ul>
<li>It supports only chm file and runs only on Windows platform (see why below).</li>
<li>It uses an intermediate file stored in the absolute path &quots;C:\chm.tmp&quot; (see nsITSChannel.cpp).</li>
<li>It assumes that the windows help path is &quots;file:C:///Windows/Help/&quots; (see nsITSURL.cpp).</li>
<li>It can only be use with the &quot;file:&quot; sub-protocol.</li> 
<li>Strange behaviour of the Back and Forward buttons.</li> 
<li>Only tested on mozilla 1.3b.</li> 
</ul>
<p><b>Technical notes:</b><br/>
The 0.1 is a concatenation of extracts from existing protocols in combination with the work made by <a href="http://www.speakeasy.net/~russotto/">Matthew T. Russotto</a> on chm file.<br/>
It's really quick and completely dirty, but runs quite fine (even better than other software which manages help).</p>
