Here’s some weird convergence: DENG is a W3C compliant XHTML/CSS/XForms rendering engine written entirely in Flash MX Actionscript. Accessibility issues aside, the concept of an embeddable, standards-compliant browser that renders XHTML and CSS with better accuracy than most desktop browsers is an exciting one. A week ago I had the pleasure of meeting principal DENG developer Sebastian Schnitzenbaumer (who is, among other things, a co-chair of the XForms working group and founder of Mozquito (link no longer active), the company developing DENG) who informed me of a number of intriguing plans for this project. I’ll be keeping my eye on this. [Newer link found, 2006, Mozquito DENG Modular XBrowser]
