Which Help file format is best for an application running in a Firefox browser?

I am writing a Help file system for a Web-based application that runs in Firefox 13. I need to make sure that the Help file output is compatible with a Firefox platform. Which types of Help platforms are compatible with Firefox? For example: .chm, .html, .xhtml, etc.?

Why are you still running Firefox 13? Please update IMMEDIATELY to Firefox 18.0.1, there are dozens of critical security issues in Firefox 13 that aren't fixed until Firefox 18

Thanks for your response. Right now, we are developing on the old platform. Unfortunately, updating to Firefox 18 is out of my control.

With that in mind: what Help platforms are compatible with Firefox? Thanks.

The HTML format should work in all modern browsers if you use W3C compliant code.

Other formats only work in specific browsers like IE.
