Hi Georg,

we use a selenium IDE-Format Configuration File which is included in the
lib Folder of the caretaker_selenium extension. Afterwards we use the
Firefox Selenium IDE for creating the Tests.

Do you mean you have external parts inside the tests? I have no clue yet
how to do this but it should be perfectly possible. For instance we
could add an include file statement to the test-configuration.
