Not exactly the answer you're looking for, but to hijack the thead -
have HTML 5 + CSS3 sufficiently advanced the art that WYSIWYGness can
be achieved?

Personally, I think the answer is yes, esp. with something like Google
Web Toolkit as the development platform. That would deliver a
browser-based solution; a web server would still be required to
deliver and maintain the document storage.

Comments? Brickbats?
