Well, Olivetree's speed is great, but Asaisoft's has the ability to view in
split-screen. It'd be neat to incorporate both.


I'm still trying to figure out the parser, and, thus, be able to incorporate
the TCR.  It's amazing how many references one can find to Nave's for the
Palm, but the public-domain Thompson Chain topics are nowhere to be found.
Diaspora does a great job, but parsing the THML is a head-scratcher....
