If I include a link in my mediawiki input to help conversion, it is not
translated to a html link. As an example if I use:

For more info see [details].

The [details] link is changed to a link to just "details" in the output
directory (not "details.html").

Can I make the conversion to eclipse help do this, or do I need to be
explicit in the link?

Regards

Henrik,

The preferred way to deal with multiple files and cross-references is
using the mediawiki-to-eclipse-help Ant task (see
http://wiki.eclipse.org/DocumentationGuidelines/CrowdSourcin gExample)
which sources content directly from a wiki. The file-based Ant tasks
don't handle cross-page references gracefully (mediawiki-to-eclipse-help
does however).

I recommend filing an enhancement request. You may want to collaborate
with Dave Carver who is experiencing the same issue.

Regards,

David
