I hope this isn't noise, but I think the reason that such a popular request 
hasn't been fulfilled is because it is much easier to generate html/js/ than to 
render and interpret it. There was a python browser:
27k lines in 1999...

There are js spreadsheets:

https://ethercalc.org/ (insane! :-) )

There are gtk renderers you could pull in:

How you'd mix them in with the plain text files (a CSI, maybe just a standard 
html header) and show them inline with the rest of the text in the existing 
program I don't know (and haven't looked at the code frankly). Or how you would 
edit it?

:-) Nice, just as I was writing this. I was /about/ to say that my only real 
idea was to use /something like/ what the kde tk had for rendering a webpage to 
an image (maybe gtk has this, dunno) and then clicking on the image would 
simply bring up a text editor window, but that's a great work-around with zero 
coding. Good one hans!
