Can SandCastle be used as a replacement for html help workshop?  That is to say can I simply add a group of html files and images created from elsewhere and output the chm?

My thanks in advance,

Yes, it is possible by adding the Additional Content Only plug-in to the project's PlugInConfigurations property.  That will cause SHFB to build a help file based solely on the additional and/or conceptual (MAML) content.  If you are just adding HTML files, Sandcastle itself won't actually come into play.  That would only happen if you add MAML topics as content.

Thank you, that helps me.  That was a clear and complete answer.  Great Job.
