[XBoard-devel] GPL and WinHelp

I found a HTML Help Workshop from MicroSoft for download.
It turned out to be able to convert the existing help project file
with the aid of a wizzard, and produced a .chm file from this.

I succeeded in invoking the Windows HTML Help Viewer from
WinBoard to display this file. I guess this is how it would have
to be done for Vista.

Now to pull this off, I need WinBoard to #include  file htmlHelp.h
and link with a library htmlHelp.lib, both supplied with the HTML
Help Workshop download. Without the library I would get an
undefined reference error for htmlHelp() during linking. We did
not seem to have that problem when caling WinHelp() to display
the old help format.

Does it pose any legal problems to link WinBoard with this
library? I am pretty sure it is not GPL'd...
