If you're lamenting CG, the ballroom sequence of Beauty and the Beast (1991) is a strange choice. The backdrop is pretty famously CG:

Something with the Cisco Kid in it?

Alack, from whence came this foul tempest? I hereby challenge Snarky for his moderator hat. TO THE PAIN!

What vile magic has invaded Daventry?

ICACLS indicates that it might be a permissions issue. Maybe try giving "Everyone" read/write access to the file before uploading it. I don't even know if that sort of stuff is preserved when things are uploaded.

I love how people act daft when people mention Microsoft or IE.

To really evaluate these browsers, you should look at the telemetry each one sends back and decide which destination URL you like better.

If you're using Sierra-style speech with portraits, check to see if any of your speech views have no frames.

Those of you who were asking may find this post (and others in that thread) interesting:

Jesus Christ... I've seen those talking points and stock phrases before... m0ds has not gone to a good place.

I agree. The Adventure Gamers forum is terrible.

Good guess, but they're not bricks. Here's another screenshot.

Fawlty Towers?

My personal feeling is that this issue is possible to fix but was bigger than you expected. I don't think a different solution is required. I think the alternative would defeat the purpose of this task. The idea, as I understand it, was to synchronise the two help systems (web and CHM) and retain the convenience of the manual with all of its features.
It isn't uncommon that open source tools are deficient in some way. I think you should wait and let morganw have a go at fixing the index.
I'm not sure what the basis is for "most software uses online manuals these days". I have quite a bit of software that ships with CHM, and I think you'll find a lot of the Windows-specific stuff out there still uses CHM even though Microsoft have abandoned it. It's always a shame to me when I encounter an application that points me to a website for help or worse, has help that lists keyboard shortcuts in a modal dialogue. It would be an even greater shame for a project that has a CHM-based manual to lose it because creating a system to keep it up to date was "hard". Partly because it's very user friendly, but also because you have the correct output already and only have to devise a system that produces output matching what exists.

Hey! Snarky got it. Well done. Excellent taste, by the way.

No to all. Some good guesses, given the era it's trying to emulate.

It's a comedy series:

Yes, I was going to point him out in the pic above. I also really love the other Renaissance productions (Cleopatra 2525, Hercules, Xena).

Here's mine:
