OK. But then I think the easiest solution would be to build a hybrid
system, where you include the link to the external information as
part of the Protege ontology, using a slot that you then interpret
the contents of and display as you wish.
You may be able to construct a special slot widget within the Protege
framework itself that does this specialized display for you. Or else
you might want to build your own application. But you should then
use the Protege API to extract the information from the ontology (the
slot values you care about) in order to render them in your own
