it won't work, because the styles get messed up.

If you edit the stubs, the style definitions can get changed by the editor.

So when I replace the top part of the file, it puts the old definitions
back in, and everything gets messed up.

So the only solution is to make a sub directory for example, and link
thm into the stubs via an iframe.

this is transparent under OSX, in a webbrowers it will display th
eexamples ina scrolling frame. I have no idea if Emacs browser supports
iframes at all these at all.

Can someone tell me?
