here is one of the better videos that explains how HSS works. It is a Pocket Wizard ad but the animations are very good.

Forgot turn on HSS could ruin your photos that happened to me when I was wondering why my fill-flash portrait photos were overblown outdoor when I used fast lens. I since stick a yellow note on all my flashguns "HSS" HSS should be on all the time as at X-sync shutter speed or below, it will use full strength of flash anyway and only on reduced strength when shutter is above X-sync. Don't understand why Canon flashguns have this option by default turning off or after everytime you removed battery for recharging for example.

That would be a helpful feature.
