You can create external hyperlinks but not external cross references. Are you aware CHMs will not work on a server?

I am trying to create a link to an .html document in another project. I am not creating .chms, I'm creating Responsive HTML 5. I misspoke about "cross-reference."

Your example link was to a CHM. You create a URL to where the external topic will be.

The tricky part is knowing that the external html file will always have to be in the same relative location/position relative to your output in the project topic with the link.
