The best HTML widget for Tk is the TkHtml widget from
http://www.hwaci.com/sw/tkhtml/. This is a C coded HTML widget,
and is very fast and quite complete. If you want to see
a browser built on it, see BrowseX (http:/www.browsex.com).
It would not be hard to write a simple Tkinter wrapper for it;
if anyone has one please let me know. IMHO, it would make a nice
evolution path for Grail.
BTW, does Grail work with Python 2.x?
