W3C is working on a new generation of a GUI client (called Amaya) which will 
support HTML 3.2. It will be released this summer under the normal W3C 
reference code terms.

The goal is to replace the current SGML/HTML/HText interface with the parser 
provided by Amaya. However, I am sure that there must be many improvements 
around to the current version in libwww and maybe they are closer to provide 
a HTML 3.2 version?
