Hi Jason :)
This sounds great.
Just a couple of little things. Would it be possible for you to use
Gtk# instead of Windows.Forms? It is more cross-platform. Don't worry
about it too much though as people are experimenting with scripts to
turn SWF forms into glade files for use in Gtk#.
Talking of cross-platform, whatever you do, and I doubt you will need
to, but make sure you don't use any win32 api calls please.
And as people have mentioned it would be great if you could use Gecko#
for HTML rendering.

All the best,
