A .chm file is a Microsoft's Compiled HTML Help (it's actually old now and the newer .hxs files). There may be a way to extract the HTML files from the .chm file and convert it into a website that browsers can display instead of a help file that browsers download/save.

I don't even think the HTML Help Workshop tool can help you because it tends to work with help "project" files (.hhp)...you'll have to research the topic in more detail.

It would save you a lot of time and effort if you just approach whoever is responsible for creating the help file and ask them to create a website version of it for you.
