I tried to use compiled html on the following system:
NT4.0 SP6 (with _old_ IE3), R-1.0.1.

R > help(ls, chmhelp=TRUE)
... but nothing happens ...

>From the R Readme:
   "To make use of this you will need a recent version of 
   Windows or IE4 or later installed, or use the updater hhupd.exe 
   on CRAN at bin/windows/windows-NT/etc."

So I used the updater 'hhupd.exe'. After that (and rebooting, ...):

R > help(ls, chmhelp=TRUE)

Here R crashes (Dr. Watson)....

The same happens on another machine with IE3 _and_ Netscape 4.73.
After installing IE5 everything works fine.
