This is a very naïve suggestion, as I dont know much of emacs display
engine. I just notice that emacs wants to display formated text, with
hyperlinks, colors, pictures, antialiasing, etc. All of that (and much
more, like complex layouts, tables, etc) is already very well adressed
in an xhtml/css+js engine such as gecko or webkit, both free software
and available for integration in third party applications.
