You can create your own OpenCV.pi file (assuming OpenCV is the module 
name) and put it in the pi-files subdirectory of your Wing settings 
directory.  I'd suggest using the auto-generated OpenCV.pi file as a 
template; you should be able to open it by using goto definition 
(ctrl-click or F4) on import OpenCV

HTML rendering is not currently supported inside of Wing.  We hope to 
add this in a future version.
