Back on the actual planned project arena, I spent more time than I intended trying to come up with a mark up scheme for the personal wiki project. At this point I think I'm just going to say "the heck with it" and implement a really basic markup, just enough to get to work on the back end stuff. Probably just -style links with no pretty names or escaping right now. Once that's in place I'll start seeing about handling the navigation events from the embedded browser.
As I've mentioned, right now I have IE embedded as a display control. It's a fairly simple process to pipe raw HTML into it. I've been thinking about trying Gecko out instead. If I can get all that to work, I might have all the building blocks I need for one of the subsystems I wanted to put into Seventh Star. That would be neat.
Yay, this project actually ties back into game development some how.
