CHM (Compiled HTML Help), AKA Microsoft Help 1, is a Microsoft format for help files. While it is proprietary, it has been reverse engineered, and many software applications can read it.

It is a compressed binary file format, including content in HTML as well as other related data.

Microsoft Help 2 was intended as a successor, but never saw much use.
