Hi
Is it possible to have some element in the (X)HTML pages display some
dynmaically generated content?

Specifically we'd like a URL to point to a location that can be changed
in the preferences.

say the HTML contain something like
<a href="${my.plugin.preference.url}"/>
and the value for ${my.plugin.preference.url} is provided at runtime by
my plugin ....

is this possible ?


The help dox mention the extension point
org.eclipse.help.contentProducer This is used to provide help content
dynamically generated at runtime.

The content producer sounds like the best way to go. That way you can
provide whatever content you want for those pages. The syntax you are
suggesting would not work in the TOC but you could instead create one
plugin which could serve any dynamic content.
