If you know that target users will have Windows, you can generate HTML
Help from DocBook. HTML Help is format used for on-line help in many
Windows applications including Windows itself. HTML Help contains HTML
pages and additional panes with ToC, index and full-text search.
Starting from Windows 98 HTML Help viewer is standard part of Windows
and you can also redistribute viewer on your CD.

There is also Java-based JavaHelp with similar capabilities, but it's
significantly slower and not so user-friendly as HTML Help.

I saw also some Java-applet based search engines targeted for CD-ROM
distributed collections of HTML pages.
