FS#2909 - HTML viewer

I’d like to see a very basic HTML (and possibly XML)
viewer. It wouldn’t have to be able to do much more
than just strip tags and parse entity and numerical
character references and collapse whitespace. A few
element types (p) would result in one or two linebreaks
and in a later version some inline types might use
inverse (or something like that) to add emphasis.

I agree, it would be great to have a html manual included with the package

I also agree. A HTML viewer can’t be all that hard. It would only have to parse the text and display what it could. Images might be possible but would be harder. Heading sizes and fonts would be harder to achieve, but hell yeah. It’d be a great idea!

I would like to see a basic html viewer also. I would like to see it support relative links to other files. Much like ipod’s html viewer does.

I totally agree with you all. Sadly, I can’t programme so, we can just hope someone will do it for us. :-)

I would love to see this as well, either this or a PDF viewer, It is quite annoying needing to convert everything to TXT to see on my Nano2G
