 if it's an actual url, apparently Process.Start ("http://...") will
 work on both linux and windows.

+libCHM is only a library to extract contents from a help file, we 
+would have to write that content to disk as a html file, check every 
+reference to external sources, load that content from the help file 
+and update the html file before we can open a web browser on the html 
+The port to C# seems to be doing all this, it is however a 
+CompactFramework project, it would have to be ported to winforms, and 
+at least parts of it has LPGL license.
+One idea might be do port this CF application to a separate 
+Mono.Windows.Help assembly with a LPGL license.
