I don't think we can claim that any 3rd party software will work in a given version of Windows (including Microsoft supplied softare). However, we have tested HTML Help Workshop in house in conjunction with XMetaL Author Enterprise and have not seen any issues with it running on Vista. We also have many many clients running it with no reports of any issues related directly to it running on Vista.

HTML Help Workshop is such an important tool for developers that I assume the Microsoft Windows development team made sure it works on Vista, despite their current claims for OS compatibility that do not include Vista as being supported (as of today):
