   You can set up a command line to run a browser with a particular URL for
searching for help on a web site. Here is a really horrible one that is sure
to break over mail for using Microsoft's online help for the Windows API:
 command.help.$(file.patterns.cpp)=
"http://search.microsoft.com/us/dev/default.asp?qu=$(CurrentWord)&boolean=AL
L&nq=NEW&so=RECCNT&p=1&ig=01&ig=02&ig=03&ig=04&ig=05&ig=06&i=00&i=01&i=02&i=
03&i=04&i=05&i=06&i=07&i=08&i=09&i=10&i=11&i=12&i=13&i=14&i=15&i=16&i=17&i=1
8&i=19&i=20&i=21&i=22&i=23&i=24&i=25&i=26&i=27&i=28&i=29&i=30&i=31&i=32&i=33
&i=34&i=35&i=36&i=37&i=38&i=39&i=40&i=41&i=42&i=43&i=44&i=45&i=46&i=47&i=48&
i=49&i=50&i=51"
 command.help.subsystem.$(file.patterns.cpp)=2

   On Linux, you could run a browser with the above URL as a separate
process or run lynx to just retrieve the text and place it in SciTE's output
pane.

   The SciTE help feature does not currently support searching multiple help
files since it is hard to determine whether a particular help request has
succeeded or failed. Someone would also have to implement the search
process.
