It's the background image used in the CHM file's HTML-part, and you can
see it on the screenshots from here:
KChm (KDE/Linux) and MS HTML-help (Windows) shows this background image
as they should, and xCHM does not. The reason is probably that chmlib -
used by xCHM, KchmViewer and many others - don't seem to support
background images at the moment.

I've done it under Linux/Wine and command line only, so it's technical
possible. The problem is license issues. AFAIK, some of the (Microsoft)
runtime files are only allowed to be used under Windows; so I
uninstalled the whole thing.
This situation will change in near future, work is on the way to do this
in a native Unix way.
Another alternative is this: Many computers are sold with an OEM versions
of Windows which is kicked out and swithed out with Linux or a BSD
variant. Is it so with the red bean machine or another one in the
CollabNet sphere? Then it's legal to run that Windows in a virtual
machine, such as VMware, Bochs and others.

It's the one used by Windows (and also Subversion's Windows Installer).
For other platforms, I don't know about the popularity, but it's
supported "everywhere" these days. It's even supported in kdevelop's
help system; it's handy to have the Mysql, perl and bash docs under the
fingertips this way! :-)
Here is some Unix stuff docs in CHM format from
