    I want to download an ebook. but it is a .chm file. i am not sure what program i use to view this type of file. any help?

    i downloaded a different .chm file to try it out before i purchased the ebook. i tried to use textedit and word to view it... but it was just a bunch of weird characters. any help please?

    thanks in advance

    Try this: http://chmox.sourceforge.net/

    I have an ebook about Mac OS X that I can easily view in Windows without additional software, but never knew how to do in OS X. I assume that'll work, but my MacBook Pro is currently in Apple repair right now, so I can't try it out to verify.

    Chmox is the only one I've ever used but it works fine so I've never bothered trying any others
