Or you could use an XML tool as a helper application for a browser.  This 
could be done in a .mailcap file or by configuring the browser.  For JUMBO
the .mailcap file looks like
text/xml;  java pmr.chemime.ChemTree %s chemical/x-cml
and this should be able to deal with Jon's Shakespeare.   (Unfortunately
JUMBO doesn't deal with all XML constructs yet).

Note, of course, that the default view of any XML browser may not be
very informative.  PLAY comes out very well in JUMBO, but the Solaris
docs would need subclasses written for several of the elements.
