The .chm file distributed with Python contains URL 
using the proprietary link scheme mk:@MSITStore. While 
this is not a problem in Windows environments, it 
prevents e.g. xchm from loading the pictures.
My suggestion is to advise the html help compiler to 
make these links absolute without specifying a 
protocol. As I do not have setup the html help compiler 
here, I cannot check if this is a working work around.

Having a .chm file that is compatible to multiple 
platforms is a large advantage because you can advise 
newbies to get this file. They are easy navigatable and 
tend to be complete.

Moving to Bugs.

Martin, do you create the CHM file?

Can you tell me how this is done?

I could check if it is possible if you can tell me where the 
HTML help compiler project etc. files are in the source

The project files are generated by calling the script
Doc/tools/  See als PEP 101.

I figured out that this issue seems to be related to xchm 
and that there are no ms-specific URLs in the source. I 
recommend non-windows users to choose http://www.kchmviewer.
net/ as it is known to work correctly with python's chm
