I agree with Terry when s/he says:

In fact, such browsers already exist in the form of most commercial SGML
products. It's a relatively small task to extend the interfaces of those
SGML tools to be HTTP-compatible (at least I hope it's small 'cause I need
to do it :)
Once these tools are available as Web clients (and hopefully with HTML as a
compliant DTD), the complexity will be completely hidden.
I think this will be the state of the Web world in 1 yr or less.
