Are you shure you want to use the wikipedia for that?

Ok, so which html reference system should I leverage here?  Where will 
the html files get stored, and how do we get from clicking the link in the 
help patch (I'm assuming we're still using the current help patches to show 
a simple demo of the object) to opening the html doc in the correct language?

 I think what implying is that maybe Pd *doesn’t* need to handle it. Simply, Pd could open a local webpage, similar to how the Processing “Find in reference” context menu option works when highlighting a function in the editor.Not to say you/we can’t work out a file format/system to handle alot of this, but I’m thinking that html reference already works well for many other contexts an doesn’t require building new formats/systems to solve alot of the same problems.

A canvas method?  A new "#" directive?Do the translations get saved along with the help patch, or are they stored in a directory and fetched when needed?
