dynamically merged help sets
I'm using the UniteAppendMerge to merge in the TOC's from the plugins for my application and I have a few questions:
1) The only way I've found to allow the use of a target in a topic is, as the documentation says, to use the exact same target in the plugin's TOC as well. This only works, however, if I create an entry in the map file for this target. It works fine if I use a bogus url (I've been using Foo.html) but is there a better way?
2) In the html, is there a way to add a link to a target rather than a url? For example, I know that if plugin X is installed properly, it will have a target called X.about, and since X is a standard plugin, I'd like to link to it's about page from another page. How can I do this?
3) like 2, but in reverse. In an html file for a plugin, how would I go about linking to a file provided by the main help set?
I know that it may not be a good design decision to have the help files of plugins and the application interact, since plugins are supposed to be modular, but it would be really nice if, when mentioning a concept in one file, I could add something like X that would only appear as a link if the given target was found.
