In fact it seems to be  the CHM viewer that (AFAIK) (other than the INF 
viewer) does not work on multiple files at the same time.

Of course I agree. multiple files are more handy, but  then the viewer 
needed to be able to do multi-file searching.

You mean CHM-files. In fact the Delphi help viewer seems to do this.

Interesting. So _this_ should be done by a script rather than merging 
the files.
