+<b><i>Identifier: </i></b>org.eclipse.compare.contentMergeViewers
+<p><b><i>Description: </i></b>This extension point allows to plug in a
+compare/merge viewer for specific content types. The viewer must extend
+<tt>org.eclipse.jface.viewers.Viewer</tt>. However since viewers don't have
+a default constructor the extension point must implement a factory object
+for viewers: the interface <tt>org.eclipse.compare.IViewerCreator</tt>.
+<p><b><i>Configuration Markup:</i></b>
+<p><tt>&nbsp;&nbsp; &lt;!ELEMENT viewer EMPTY></tt>
+<br><tt>&nbsp;&nbsp; &lt;!ATTLIST viewer</tt>

+<ul>
+<li>
+<b>id</b> - a unique identifier that can be used to reference the viewer</li>
+
+<li>
+<b>class</b> - name of a class that implements a factory for the content
+merge viewer and implements <tt>org.eclipse.compare.IViewerCreator</tt></li>
+
+<li>
+<b>extensions </b>- a comma separated list of file extensions e.g . "java,
+gif"</li>
+</ul>
+<b><i>Examples:</i></b>
+<br>The following is an example of compare/merge viewer for text files
+(extension "txt"):
+<p>&lt;extension point = "org.eclipse.compare.contentMergeViewers">
+<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &lt;viewer
+<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; id="org.eclipse.compare.contentmergeviewer.TextMergeViewer"
+<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; class="org.eclipse.compare.internal.TextMergeViewerCreator"
+<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; extensions="txt"
+<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; />
+<br>&lt;/extension>
+<p><b><i>Supplied Implementation:</i></b>

+and images.
