You want to create a new menu item in the Help menu, that would open a
given URL, similar to menu item "Online Docs and Support"? Did I
understand you correctly?

Savitri, your notion of "Help Content's format" makes me think that you
want your text in the Help viewer - I do not know how to do that. I can
only describe how to add a menu item that, when selected (activated),
will cause the default web browser to display a given HTML page:

1) In your module's project, create a URL file for URL of the page
that should be displayed if the menu item is selected.

To create the URL file, invoke action "New File..." (Ctrl+N),
select category "Other" and file type "Empty File". Name the file
such that the extension is "url", e.g. "mylink.url".
The only content of the file should be the desired URL,
e.g. "http://www.netbeans.org/" (without the quotes).

2) Add a reference to the URL file to your module's XML layer file
(layer.xml).

The reference must be in folder "Menu/Help". Example:

<folder name="Menu">
<folder name="Help">
<file name="netbeans-main.url"
url="nbresloc:/path/to/mylink.url">
</folder>
</folder>

The attribute "url" of the <file> element defines the location of
the URL file that you created in the first step. Protocol
"nbresloc" defines that the given path ("/path/to/mylink.url")
should be looked up in the installed NetBeans modules and that
localized variants (e.g. "/path/to/mylink_de.url") should be used
if applicable and found. An alternate protocol is "nbres", which
ignores localized files.
