  1. Graeme Geldenhuys, that’s probably because MS screwed things up with the silly and unnecessary HTML Help system some ten years ago. If Borland/Inprise/CodeGear/whatever had stuck with the old Windows Help system, it would probably be an order of magnitude faster.

  2. It’s one thing that MS screwed it up; but everyone was already used to that by then. The real mystery is why B/I/C/w — and everyone else — so blindly followed along. MS itself obviously weren’t going to abandon Windows Help (because of backwards compatibility with legacy applications), so B/I/C/w didn’t need to do so either.
