Can JavaHelp be used for web application which is using JSP and Ajax technology. It seems like more suitable for swings ( thick clients applications). Has anybody used it for thinn client web applications?

If it is not suitable are there any better open source technologies useful for implementing help system in JSP pages?

Thanks,
Basheer.

Besides, I have no experience with this. java.sun.com describes

"JavaHelp software is a full-featured, platform-independent, extensible help system that enables you to incorporate online help in applets, components, applications, operating systems, and devices. Authors can also use the JavaHelp software to deliver online documentation for the Web and corporate intranet." - java.sun.com
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
