I would like the functionality of displayHelpResource() (that is,
launching the help viewer in a separate widow and directing it to a
particular topic/page). However, all examples of usage of that method I
can find in the Eclipse source basically hard-code the href path to the
HTML files, either in the code (yuck!) or in a messages.properties file.
What I'd ideally like to do is use context IDs that are already being
defined by our help plugin.
Is there any way to resolve from context ID to href expected by
displayHelpResource()? From digging into the source it looks like you
can prepend "contextId=" to the href String, but that is just taking me
to the home page of Help instead of the topic defined for that ID.

Thanks in advance,
Eric
