thanks very much for all the comments. let me be more specific about my

i want to add multimodal capabilities to the webkit. I want to trigger (or
communicate with) an external app based on events happening in the xhtml
document. Also i want to insert custom events into the XHTML context based
on results from the external process. Is there any way i can do this with
current version of webkit. any pointers on what needs to be done?
