The advantages of using HTML are:
* flexibility, for us that is, you can do many things without too much
* have you seen the cool stuff some artists have done with CSS?
* Look at the code in contextbrowser.cpp, yuck. But we can fix this with
some helper classes.
It would be a real shame to lose the cool CSS themes people have come up
with, and also I don't see how we can mimic HTML without reimplementing
what a HTML renderer basically does. But I probably don't get what you
mean so please enter more data after the beep.
