Flying Saucer - Pure Java XHTML renderer

Joshua Marinacci did it again. After an extensive study covering almost every Java-based webbrowser available (both, open-source and commercial), he launched a new project:Flying saucer - a pure Java XHTML renderer.

Since it is obvious that a single person can't develop a web browser by himself, he made an intelligent decision: cut the crap. Flying saucer won't be a browser. No bookmarks, history, javascript. It will support XHTML and CSS only. He reasons: "Since this is for embedding in my own programs most of the content will be generated by my own code. I don't need to deal with every browser bug and every malformed webpage out there. I could get by with strictly compliant pages and worry about quirks handling in a compatibility library.".

A prototype is available.
