FAQ How do I add help content to my plug-in?

Help is added to Eclipse in the form of help books that appear in the online help system. Each help book is laid out in table-of-contents files (toc.xml) that specify the structure of each help book. These table-of-contents files are then registered with the platform, using the extension point. The help content must be in the form of standard HTML files. Each major topic should be in a separate file so it can be referenced in the table of contents. Not surprisingly, excellent help content that describes how to integrate help into your plug-in is available, so we don’t need to go into further detail here.
