Dont really know for which platform/port of webkit u want to do this.
If its a gtk port u can use a cairo for doing the same .
If its s60 (if at all u r experimenting) then using CFbsBitmapDevice
context u can create a memory bitmap and then draw it onto graphics
Webkit also does same kind of operation when it renders its contents
on webview. So webkit already does it ... u just need to find way to
Please correct me if i am wrong on this .... :)
Thanks & Regards
