However, my point is not about using a web browser, but about
storing a reference page as a single parsable resource, instead
of breaking it into several unparsable comments (same goes for
any other type of longer self-contained text).
The way it is displayed is quite another matter. I am proposing
the external browser, as the easiest, and the most
old-fashioned-Pdish way to do it. Another option is including
some kind of a browser widget in pd-gui, which you seem proposing:
