      1. Test some help icons on your favourite Moodle forms, to make sure this does not cause any regressions.

      Description

      For a plugin I am working on (https://github.com/maths/moodle-qtype_stack) we would like the 'More help' link in help pop-ups to go to a script within out plugin (e.g. $CFG->wwwroot . '/question/type/stack/doc/doc.php/Authoring/Potential_response_trees.md#Answer_note') rather than to Moodle docs.

      This has two advantages:
      1. It lets us manage the help content in the way we prefer.
      2. The 'More help' can include PHP-generated content, like the Emoticons help used to do in Moodle 1.9.

      At the same time, we should add support for absolute URLs (starting http(s)://) to cover the use cases where people want to link to their own online help.
