   Yes, SciTE just knows how to run various things. This started out with
running other processes, either attached or in the background and has
evolved into calling the help file viewers HtmlHelp and WinHelp. If you want
to have something that searches through a set of web pages then you'll have
to write a program that can be called to achieve this.
