You can publish normal WebHelp output to a server without needing Server 7. That only is required for the reports, etc. (X5.0.2, RH6, RH7)
This is good news.
Leon is absolutely right of course. However, one thing raised a red flag in your original post. You mention "HTML Help". If you meant to say "HTML-based Help" (WebHelp or FlashHelp) that would be fine. However if you literally mean HTML Help (the compiled .CHM) format, that would not be OK. The CHM format is not designed for web delivery. Instead it is meant for deploying on a user's local hard drive, typically installed with a desktop application.
Sorry to butt in. Just saying...
>So I can publish WebHelp or WebHelp Pro for server-based applications without Server 7?
One part yes, one part no! Some clarification is needed.
The word "server" is getting mangled here because you're talking about the RoboHelp Server 7 on the one hand and "server-based applications" on the other. Let's see if I can sort it out.
It sounds like WebHelp would be the most appropriate in your situation (without the RoboHelp Server). You would use WebHelp Pro *only* if you were publishing directly to RoboHelp Server 7. That said, you can also have that same WebHelp Pro project provide help to any server-based application.
Hope this helps.
