Reviewing 1.1 Beta (Jun 29, 2008)
Free version is supposed to be limited to 10 topics, but this doesn't seem to be enforced (yet?).
Good: Easy to use and configure; Can import CHM files; Can paste HTML into it (but not back out).
Bad: Can not edit HTML of pages (although you can for the template); No tooltips in the editor - you have to play guess the icon function; Couple minor bugs and had issues rendering some of my backgriound colours.

Looks good, simple to use and worth the PRICE ( Free).
