Dear Lewis,

To open a .htm file directly from the web server in oXygen XML editor on 
the Eclipse plugin please follow the steps below:

- Go to Eclipse Preferences and in the File Associations page locate the 
*.htm entry

- Edit this to add the Oxygen XML Editor editor and mark it as Default 
(use the Add and Default buttons next to the Associated Editors area)

- Use the File->Open URL action and enter the URL you want to open, for 
example http://www.sbsa.gov.uk/web_books/non_domestic/non_domestic.htm

- You can use F3 on a file name to open that corresponding file

In any case, as that is not a WebDAV server you will not be able to save 
your changes to those files. So, a better approach is to download 
everything locally and then put those files in a project inside the 
Eclipse workspace.

Best Regards,
