 We have both the low-level (no OO) stubs and the object level.
 The binding is really close to the one of the widgets provided with
 LablGtk as optionals (es. XMHTML), but it is clean and stand-alone
 (if you have just installed LablGtk).

 The widget is a C (C++ + C in fact) widget. We provided a debian package
 for an old version, but we have not updated it so far and it was not
 official. We provide also the RedHat package, but I prefer debian ;-)
 It is under GPL.

 Then we have a OCaml binding (both stubs and object level) for a
 small DOM interface built on libxml2. It is extremely simple.
 No debian package yet. It will be put under GPL.

 Then we have the OCaml binding for the widget, that uses the DOM one.
 The one for the 0.2.1 version will be released tomorrow. It will be
 put under GPL.

 In these days I am at INRIA for a short period of time and the
 author of the widget (I am the author of the binding) is in U.S.
 for a comference. So our answers are not very quick. When back
 in Bologna we will be both happy to contribute as much as possible.
