Here are some answers:

To change the order that the plugins appear in the table of contents, you can use the helpdata.xml file.

First, change your plugin_customization.ini file to include a line like this:

org.eclipse.help/HELP_DATA=helpdata.xml

Then, in the same directory as the plugin_customization.ini file,
create a file called helpdata.xml. You can find an example of the syntax of that file here: http://help.eclipse.org/galileo/index.jsp?topic=/org.eclipse .platform.doc.isv/guide/ua_help_setup_help_data.htm

I had to try this several times to get it to work, but eventually it did. One important thing that I discovered was that I needed to save helpdata.xml as UTF8, not as ANSI. I've fought through this recently with a standalone help system and finally have it working (on four operating systems and for 5 or 6 different products), so if you get stuck, I'm happy to provide more information.

To change the language of the search header.. Have you downloaded the Eclipse Babel language packs? You'll need those. If you don't have them, please write back and I can give you those instructions too.

Most likely the plugin_customization.ini file is not getting read.

If you place plugin_customization.ini in the same folder as Eclipse and start Eclipse adding the parameter to set the customization preference like this

eclipse -pluginCustomization plugin_customization.ini

you customizations will get read.

You can add a line like this to plugin_customization.ini

org.eclipse.help.base/advanced.viewBackground=yellow

which sets the background of the table of contents to yellow as a way to verify that the customization file is being read.

You can download the language packs from here:
http://www.eclipse.org/babel/downloads.php

Each pack contains far more than you need for the help system, so I only copied these jar files for each language into my plugins folder:

org.eclipse.help.appserver.nl_xx
org.eclipse.help.base.nl_xx
org.eclipse.help.nl_xx
org.eclipse.help.ui.nl_xx
org.eclipse.help.webapp.nl_xx

The rest were not needed.
