It is prepared an uppweb version (not uploaded yet) that lets to include pure html in T++ help pages.
The actual format is this:
This lets to include for example youtube videos in U++ page.
The advantage of including this in T++ help files is that it is not necessary to include the html text in C++ code. Uppweb application just parses T++ pages. If it finds the above sequence and just considers it is pure html.
A problem of this focus is that the html text "stains" the T++ page. It would be better if html would be invisible, like an html hyperlink or an index entry.
Please tell me if this format is adequate or you would change it.

About the ideological problem you have with the visible html: Since this is going to be allowed only in www.tpp, I think it is absolutely OK that the html is visible. Actually I think it is even better than hiding it behind index entry like it was before. One had to read the source code to find out how would the page look like after the substitution.
You can always add html-style comment (<!-- ... --->) to explain the purpose of the markup in cases where it is not obvious.
Nice work I'm really looking forward to using this!
It is easy to insert a video or embed code in uppweb html. You just have to:
- choose where to put it,
- select some item that will be substituted in web by html (for example an image)
- append to it an Index Entry. That Index Entry has to begin with "HTMLTEXT" text and after that all code will be inserted literally in final html.
An advantage of this is that you can insert a frame of a video as a picture and append to it the Index Entry with html:
- When offline (simple T++) user will see the picture and
- when online (in web) user will see the video
so it will be always useful
I will probably insert a video explaining how to insert a video
