Hi Dominique,

I am interested in HTML viewer too. Now I'm using customized 
TIpHtmlPanel with Indy, but more powerfull HTML viewer would be great.
I don't know how much useful I could be but I'd like to follow progress 
and contribute if I feel I am able to. (As for now I am using Pascal 
only time to time. I hope to resume my Lazarus-based project after two 
months.)

Can you shortly write what is the status of current port (what is 
working and on what platforms, what is needed to be done)?


Regards,
Zilvinas
