Hi Vadim,

Will DlangUI feature a HTML widget (i.e. a Web browser)? In case 
it already does and I just didn't find it, where would it be? In 
case it doesn't, how hard would it be to add it?

Hello, It's planned to add HTML (XML+CSS) widget to DlangUI. DlangUI is started as a port of my C++ GUI library created for Cool Reader app. It includes XML/CSS renderer. So, there are many chances to get it working. It could be used to show rich test, simple HTML, and so on.

Cool, that's exactly what I wanted to hear :) A lot of stuff is HTML/CSS (+ JS) these days (e.g. ebooks) so a UI framework cannot do without it.
