As hard it might sound. There is no architecture documentation available at 
this moment, the code is all we have.

Regarding starting, the question is what do you want to learn? There are blog 
posts by Dave Hyatt on the surfin safari blog how the render tree is working, 
there is a video by Lars Knoll and George Staikos on Yahoo explaining the 
history and ideas of KHTML/WebKit.

Do you have any specific interest? CSS? Layout? Painting? DOM? Networking?
