Hi Roger.

The WebKit.net code is old and unmaintained.  It was designed for the 
previous layout of WebKit for the Win32 platform and has not been 
updated for the new version (which came about with Safari 3, 533 if I'm 
guessing right).

The interfaces and the entire library has changed and evolved it renders 
this .NET wrapper codebase useless.

Hopefully the codebase will give you a better idea on how to fix a 
better wrapper around the current WebKit.  If you would be interested in 
sharing your changes back with me (the orignal developer of the aged 
code), I have a mercurial repo (the SVN repo is very old) at 
http://hg.irken.org/webkit.net and can give you push access.
