B - Fixed bug in WinHelp import where "?/@#$%^" characters are now filtered out in import. This caused HTML-Help compilation to fail.

Command-Line compile settings:
'/ch' for CHM
'/cp' for PDF

The syntax is:

some time ago, I thought that I could get the community's response.
However, I recevied:
1) SNIDE REMARKS for NO REASON,
2) PERSONAL ATTACKS,
3) NASTY COMMENTS,
5) F**** AND OTHER BAD WORDS
THIS IS AN OPEN-SOURCE PROJECT. IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM, YOU CAN SEE THE SOURCE CODE BEHIND THE PROGRAM AND FIX IT.
IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO FIX IT, YOU CAN KINDLY POST A MESSAGE ON SOURCEFORGE AND I WILL TAKE A LOOK AT IT AND WHEN I HAVE TIME, I WILL FIX IT.
TAKE A LOOK AT THE OTHER PROJECTS. THEY ARE LESS COMPLETE THAN HELPMAKER IS. TO DATE, NOBODY HELPED ME WITH THIS PROJECT. INSTEAD OF HELPING, THEY DISCOURAGE THE AUTHOR BY MAKING STUPID COMMENTS, SNIDE REMARKS, POSTING BAD WORDS TO EVERYONE.
IS THIS HOW YOU TREAT AN OPEN-SOURCE PROJECT?
THE AUTHOR OF THIS PROGRAM GOT TIRED OF THESE REMARKS MADE TO HER AND DECIDED TO MAKE THE PROJECT CLOSED-SOURCE AND FREEWARE.
THE EXPERIMENT WITH OPENSOURCE IS A FAILURE.
YOU CAN NOW OBTAIN UPDATES OF HELPMAKER FROM www.accviz.com
