HTML Help Files were not properly unzipped: folder created, HTML file
unzipped there, but __folder containing the resources for the HTML
folder (css, icons...) was not there__.

Finally I got it working by following this procedure:
- Create the HTML Help File using VASSAL Editor.
- Manually unzip the vmod or vmdx files.
- __Manually__ zip the HTML file and resources folder used to display

- replace the zip file in the /help folder with the one manually
- Manually zip again the vmod or vmdx files.

Now it works!
