ehhh...I'd be careful about that. From:
What does it cost? Do I need to license Navigator?
NetHelp, including the API, sample code, and SDK, is free. Much of
NetHelp's functionality is already built in to Netscape Navigator.
Sample code used to hook up native applications may be used in your
product and distributed without a licensing fee. Graphic files, such
as the buttons used in the SDK's sample help system, can be reused
without a licensing fee.
Since Navigator is currently the only browser that supports the level
Navigator with your product requires a licensing fee.
