Better way to handle WML content ( than modifying anything in
Webkit/WebCore) is to implement its logic seperately , as it adheres to
different set of rules than HTML specs.

What , i think, at most u can do is get WML data downloaded using platform
network layer and initiate WML engine , may be a seperate process or

This will also make Webkit lightweight.

Thanks & Regards
