 I thought it is the language neutral Document Object Model to
manipulate HTML, CSS and XML documents, and it is defined via IDL

 Both gwp and gnumeric use XML, that is why I thought DOM might be of
some use, but my knowlidge of CORBA, COM, OLE and OpenDoc is
theoretic, if not less, and I can not grasp the whole picture -- it is
too big for me. That is why I asked.



 Personnaly, I am more interesting in CORBAizing scientific tools,
e.g.  breezing life into GINA, but I am not sure if Bonobo is of any
use for it.  I see it more like ComputerBoards(if anyone knows that
company) universal library wrapped into ORBs plus signals. I was toying
with that idea for a while now, creating C++ objects with Qt signals
and slots and just plain C for some instruments (delay generators,
lasers, and LeCroy oscilloscopes). I BADLY NEED AN ADVISE, as I easily
can venture in the wrong direction.

 I understand that it is not of interest for the general public and is
not a high priority project, but at least it is close to what I am
supposed to do at work.
