The structure will be derived from a DTD-less XML document.
We generate the minimum S file (in fact the similar internal structure) 
that allows the thotlib to handle the document instance.
Today we are able to parse an XML document and to display its formatted
view (only the text is displayed) + structure view + source view.

Not yet. We need to develop our CSS implementation to take more advantage
of the Thot's P language.
