Note that all these instructions also apply for templates in skin files. Skins contain the same templates as normal projects, in the same locations.

Script components used in the templates

Help+Manual uses the weblink jQuery JavaScript framework in CHM and WebHelp output for more efficient JavaScript coding and effects. The compressed version of the latest jQuery script file is exported and referenced automatically in the templates. There are also additional CSS script files included by Help+Manual for layout and dynamic functions. If you are familiar with HTML, CSS and JavaScript coding, you can change the positions of the references to these files, leave them out entirely or write your own modified versions of the style definitions and functions they contain.
