A quick peek inside swingall.jar shows that there is a package
com.sun.java.swing.text.html.  Within the package (and judging from
namesa alone), the following classes look like good starting points:

- com.sun.java.swing.text.html.HTMLDocument
- com.sun.java.swing.text.html.HTMLEditorKit
- com.sun.java.swing.text.html.HTMLStyleCallback
- com.sun.java.swing.text.html.HTMLWriter
- com.sun.java.swing.text.html.StyleSheet

I have not had a chance to dig through the JavaDoc's yet, but it may
be that we can write at least a partial SAX driver on top of this.

All the best,
