Oh great! I thought it is not possible to get that text from those files.I've seen that they are not so nice formatted as a book, but at least their content is very accessible.

Now available at http://www.EmpowermentZone.com/net20doc.zip This large zip archive (about 25 megabytes compressed) contains structured text versions of documentation for developing with the Microsoft .NET 2.0 Framework. The documentation was converted from files in Microsoft Help 2 format (.hxs extension) that were installed with the Express Editions of Visual C# 2005, Visual Basic 2005, and SQL Server 2005. The purpose is to provide an alternate format that may be easier to search, browse, and read for some users of screen reader programs, as compared to the nonvisual usability provided by Microsoft Document Explorer or other readers of the native help format. The .hxs files were initially converted to HTML with ABC Amber HXS Converter, which is commercially available from http://ProcessText.com Subsequently, Custom utilities eliminated redundant header or footer lines and created structured text that may be used with any text reader. Such use is particularly convenient with programs that implement the "Homer editor interface," e.g., EdSharp, which is freely available at http://www.EmpowermentZone.com/edsetup.exe About 90 File names, -- listed below -- were changed from cryptic abbreviations to meaningful phrases by inspecting their initial content. Since the conversions involve approximations, they are intended to make valuable content more accessible, rather than attempt error-free translations.
