Calibre can be stretched quite a long way via the use of URI links to files, folders, Internet Web & FTP sites etc. A Custom Column of long text, can act as the container because it is HTML. I'm surprised its not 'more widely' used - maybe it is - and I've just not seen it mentioned. I haven't tried any Javascript yet,

Thanks a lot for this trick!!
It is indeed very powerful; but please post at least an small HOWTO. Did you manage the Javascript part?
