Perhaps this is an option if we can list all the main Operating Systems
that The GIMP is used on, and locate a common application accross all of
them that can adequately render XML. Linux -> Mozilla, Windows -> I.E.
etc. (making the rash assumption that all Linux users have Moz ;)

There's been the on-going suggestion from bex (Rebecca) that we look
into existing help-browser projects and perhaps even ScrollKeeper if it
isn't too heavy. How do people feel about this idea?
