IMHO if you have a lot of text to translate, the standard method we have use (lang_get)will not be good.
If we put the help text strings, into strings.txt the file will increase too much it's size.
May be we need to think about a new strings file only for the help pages ?

You are right regarding "product driven background color", and we can fix it
with the PHP, very soon, without considering yet the other to issues.

I think so that a second data file would be appropriate. Background color is only cosmetic problem, so don't worry.
This is not too much work to make php solution. But it is a time consuming to rewrite all languages and update requests.

@mhavlat: Should we do this?
I would prefer a solution with one general smarty-tpl which is used by all helpfiles.
So we have only one CSS and one TPL for all.
And the text should be within XML and will be transformed via XSL to the appropriate HTML Format.
So we have only one TPL one CSS and one XSL.
Do you know a better solution?

I definitely agree with one TPL. But why to use xml/xsl?

Do you agree to use an extra localization file with one constant/variable for each help page?

I plan to move text into strings.txt (include simple html tags: bold, italic and link).

the idea is to separate the contents of the help file with its representation.

Finally I can close this.
