I'm stuck with a Windows machine for a week, so can't respond to code questions but maybe can offer some thoughts here:

(1) Help books are simply html files with appropriate links. The OS runs the help book for you at the codes request. Presumably you've followed the info.plist recipe and provided the same HB keys shown in Bernie's examples. I would also verify the html 'runs' fine by launching the base html file in a browser ( on Snow Leopard ) just to confirm the links are ok.

(2) OK in Mavericks but busted in Snow Leopard sounds like Help Center needs to be reset in Snow Leopard. The following link describes a Help Center reset and other trouble-shooting tips.  <http://www.thexlab.com/faqs/helpviewer.html>
