I'm not sure what exactly you are trying to save, or how you are trying to do it.

>> I don't understand what you mean here.

That's right.  There is a javascript interface "pdgui.js" that does exactly this.

Right.  But adding hooks to allow the easy loading of html files is a lot of work.  If the requirement 
is that the content loaded must be absolutely positioned on top of a Pd patch then I'm not sure 
there are enough benefits to outweigh the work involved.

Right.  I think there are already enough externals for fairly simple links/graphics that it can 
probably fulfill a lot of what users need.
