Does DOM allow for access to partially parsed documents? (eg. for use

That would at least also require XSL support. But in any case, I think
it is important _not_ to mix rendering issues with the parsing/document
access things.

I have worked purely on the parser/document access for Mnemonic, not on 
any of the rendering modules. If we want to build a generic XML/XSL
rendering engine for Gnome I'm sure the Mnemonic team can be of help as
well, but it's really something different.

Mnemonic also contains a fairly well thought out network module, usable
outside of the browser itself. We'd be interested in collaborating on
that project as well.
