Using the CustomizableIntroPart

The platform's CustomizableIntroPart is an intro part which reads intro content from XML files and presents the content using HTML. Cascading Style Sheets (css) can be used to control most aspects of the presentation including background image, font style and layout.  The following extensions are required to use CustomizableIntroPart.

In addition org.eclipse.ui.intro.configExtension extensions can be used from any plugin to extend the intro content. This structure allows product plug-in developers to focus on developing their intro content rather than implementing an intro part scheme from scratch. If a different intro class is specified, then these two extension points are not utilized and the specified class must implement its own scheme for intro content format and configuration.
