Re: [nbos] Looking for details on Custom plugins

It's a neat idea, but The Keep does not support that type of
integration. The custom topic plugins have to be HTML files.

The attachment topic type can run external programs based on the type of
file used (it'll run Excel if the attachment is a spreadsheet, for
example). But it won't embed the display. During development I
experimented with embedding MS-Office for Word & Excel docs, which would
have been very useful, but could never get it working well enough.
