After retreiving the bibliographic information it is easy to create a link to espacenet. The structure of an espacenet url is:
http://worldwide.espacenet.com/publicationDetails/biblio?locale=en_EP&DB=&FT=D&CC=[2 digit country code]&NR=[pub num & kind code]&KC=[kind code]
for EP1234567B1 this would result in:

Just take any programming/scripting language and glue (concatenate) the text pieces together with the publication number variables and required html instructions into one string and output it as html hyperlink:
<a href="http://worldwide.espacenet.com/publicationDetails/biblio?locale=en_EP&DB=&FT=D&CC=EP&NR=1234567B1&KC=B1">EP1234567B1</a>
This should do the trick.
