Writing good help files

Any resources?. I am making .hlp files. I  want to improve my English/Writing style  too.

I am looking for some Microsoft web site link which instructs the "Do's and Dont's"

Can someone please guide me?

A good place to start is "The Helpware Group" and their web links page:
