I wouldn't use NotePad. Too many limitations. Try TextPad, with the XML
addon (shareware), PFE32 (freeware), etc.

I think the "win-win" is persuading your client to
dump the proprietary binary and other proprietary
platform-dependent software.

Persuade the client to have you work in a text editor
producing ASCII-based stuff, like HTML or XML.

That way, you win because of all the cash and the
length of the project and your client wins because
they don't have to shell out for costly tools and
neither do they get locked into platforms and tools.

RoboHelp? FrameMaker? Why? Notepad and its ilk are
less costly, stable, and your source files can be
worked on *anywhere*. ;?P
