XHTML support in the Eclipse Welcome Framework

If you are developing a product using Eclipse framework, there will be more chances of having your own welcome page. I did not find any articles on this when I searched. But I found this link, which can help as tutorial for building custom welcome pages.
Follow the examples carefully. Note that all the pages should be strict XHTML 1.0 complaint. Absorb the steps specified in the examples. Violating it may sometimes work but sometimes leads to abnormal behavior . For example,one of the cases I came across, the ‘page’ element specified in introContent.xml(the file you specify in org.eclipse.ui.intro.config extension), like this,

<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”utf-8″ ?>
<introContent>
<page id=”root” url=”content/root.xhtml”></page>
</introContent>
This works in some systems. But sometimes it will prompt the user to download or save ‘root.xhtml’ file. In my case the user got this problem as soon as he installed Firefox browser but I am not sure this is the actual cause. To fix this problem, you should use ‘content’ attribute instead of ‘url’ attribute while specifying ‘page’ element,

<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”utf-8″ ?>
<introContent>
<page id=”root” content=”content/root.xhtml”></page>
</introContent>
