Alphabetically sorting Eclipse RCP help pages and custom bookmark titles

Extending the Eclipse help in a RCP is easy. However, there seem to be some hidden features as we have lately discovered for JCrypTool. Since JCrypTool is heavily based on crypto plug-ins which do extend our platform, we do include lots of other plug-ins via anchors in the online help:

<topic label="Signatures" href="toc.html" sort="true">
  <anchor id="signaturePlugins" />
</topic>

sort=”true” does the magic here and sorts all plug-ins extending this anchor alphabetically.

The other latest change was the title element for each html head. Even though the title entered here is not visible, it is used for the bookmark title a user can create for each page. Adding it is strongly recommended, otherwise the pages’ path will be used.
