       Are you saying that a TeX widget could be developed from the current
       TeX source code?  As I understand it, this would not be too easy, but
       not _that_ hard either, as long one does not try to implement it as an
       editable widget.

    No.  I'm saying that something can be ginned up to produce hypertext
    documents from dvi files (with appropriate \special's).  That would
    keep the TeX/LaTeX community happy until something better could be
    done.

Latex2html already has such a feature.  see http://www.ELSEVIER.NL/WWW94/PrelimProcs.html

Might be best to get Nikos Drakos (nikos@cbl.leeds.ac.uk) into the loop.
