Creating help topics through the web is really only meant for associating
them with ZClasses (you know, the little 'help' pull down box next to
ZClass views)

In a directory in your product named 'help'.  .html, .txt, and .stx files
can be created there, as well as any images you want.  Help topics are
associated with object views in your objects 'manage_options'.  See just
about any core Zope product for an example.
