Angry Why no online help in any project?

This is a pretty good book but I am disappointed that there is no coverage of the helpprovider component or any mention of how to provide the user with help for the projects discussed. The text editor in chapter seven would have been a good place to put it. Although this lack of of help coverage is common in computer programming books, this book is so good for it's intended audience of programmers coming from at least some experience in another language that I feel the authors should have at least shown how a chm file could be used to provide context help. There is not one mention of help in the index.
