I've used both a live website and a compiled file for software help sections, each on more than one occasion. While the website is great, I'm only using a compiled file now because it's more inline with the software experience I'm attempting to achieve.

HTML Help Workshop

NOTE: Sandcastle uses newer technology (Help 2.0 Workshop), although it's similarly not being updated. HTML Help Workshop uses HTML Help 1.33, and there is reference for command line compiling using HTML Help Workshop executables.
