Look, I said wireframe meaning the structure of divs (with their
heights, widths and background colors and relative position beetwen
them) in a xhtml+css document. My idea for a plugin is to parse (i don't
know if this term is correct) that information creating a new document
with layers with solid fill with the same dimensions and placement that
the div blocks of the source document have.
So, a plugin or script for this should read the document and its css,
and place the new layers in a blank image template.
As a xhtml is a text file, the order of the div blocks will be
consecutive. The divs with their width, height, floating and other
styles related to the visual formatting model will have a class, ID or
style applied to read from. The divs with other purposes (conceptual
delimitation) won't, so they can be skipped.
I haven't a coder background, so I cannot say how (and if it can be easy
to implement or not), but I think that it's, at least, an interest idea.
And it sounds logical to me.
Maybe it would be possible to use an external rendering engine (gecko or
so) for translating the html elements into graphical blocks.
