some chm e-books do not open. I then have to open them with chmox or chamonix (neither of which have search capabilities that work with these e-books)

    Such as? Which CHM books?
    I can't test it if you don't provide the input can I?
    Please attach one such CHM book to your bug report, or provide a valid download link.

    Sorry, the problem here is with wxHtmlWindow and it's inability to handle non-trivial JavaScript in HTML documents. Unfortunately there's no feasible alternative to wxHtmlWindow yet (I've considered wxMozilla in the past, but it's nowhere near being mature enough, and it's not really an alternative for Mac).

    Do insist (report a bug) to the wxWidgets maintainers that you need better JavaScript support for wxHtmlWindows. Perhaps more voices will make more of a difference?

    Until then, there's not much I can do.
