I'm not sure if they are current products, but I've noticed that Apple 
are responsible for distributing authoring tools that generate 
apan/div/style/a HTML.  It looks to me that Apple want to make purely 
presentational, WYSIWYG languages, but not full graphical ones, possibly 
because their target market is not sophisticated enough to use vector 
graphics and/or they want good fallback on IE.
