The problems with that are:
 * not everything seems easy to do by tweaking the DSL file
(e.g. removing everything outside the body tag)
 * reciprocally some things (tweaking the URLs) are simpler (safer) to
do in the .dsl file than in perl
 * apparently nobody knows how these .dsl files work
 * default.dsl specifies attributes that hard-code the coulor and style
of various HTML elements. That's fine for standalone HTML files but it's
wrong for a web site where such things should be specified by the
cascading style sheets

No problem. I thought you guys wanted to move it to Wine's tools
