I can see how this could possibly give us a
1. really good detailed internal help system for packages
(in not having to rely on branding of users browser which
has been a major hassle)
Even direct access to materials in the TeXLive or MiKTeX
2. html user interfaces?
Forms for filling out infomaionon complex LaTeX (and
User made) commands
for insertion in editor wiindow
object model " below,
mean that a QTScript could invke the QTbrowser form, and then walk its DOM ?
Could a script inside a QTbrowser form page talk to the QTscript object and
(i) set variables for the running QTScript?
(ii) even better call functions directly in the QTScript API?
"QtWebKit provides a Web browser engine that makes it easy to
embed content from
the World Wide Web into your Qt application.
"At the same time Web content can be enhanced with native controls.
"QtWebKit provides facilities for rendering of HyperText Markup
Extensible HyperText Markup Language (XHTML) and Scalable Vector
Graphics (SVG) documents,
This bit looks really exciting
object model makes
it possible for custom QObjects to be scripted.
"Integration with the Qt networking module enables Web pages to be
transparently loaded from
Web servers, the local file system or even the Qt resource system.
