Actually, when I was an intern at Sun Labs in 1996, I proposed, along with
another researcher, a project to build a super-slim browser that was
essentially a Java run-time environment with SGML support. The UI and
everything would be downloaded as SGML and relevant helper classes.
Needless to say it didn't eventuate. If we'd waited a year we would have had
XML instead of SGML and it probably would have taken off.
