Would someone on the Eclipse UA team please confirm which of the
following are supposed to work when specified in the link_to attribute?
And which one you would consider is a "best practice"?

Given a doc plug-in with:
pluginID = edition1_1
toc file = edition1_1.xml
anchorID in edition1_1.xml = comps

Trying to anchor into that anchorID using link_to, I see the following

link_to="/../edition1_1/edition1_1.xml#comps Works in Eclipse 3.4.1

link_to="/edition1_1/edition1_1.xml#comps Works

link_to="../edition1_1/edition1_1.xml#comps Works (this is also
in the help doc example in ua_help_content_nested.htm topic)

link_to="PLUGINS_ROOT/edition1_1/edition1_1.xml#comps Works

link_to="/PLUGINS_ROOT/edition1_1/edition1_1.xml#comps Does Not work

Now, the help topic on Content Extensions
( e.platform.doc.isv/guide/ua_dynamic_extensions.htm)
says that the format of the 'path" attribute is:

So, is it a bug that link_to="/PLUGINS_ROOT/<pluginID>/<tocfile>#anchorID"
does not work?

Or is PLUGINS_ROOT not useful for contributing into an anchor?

Is the best practice to use the path attribute format? For example:

Thanks in advance!
