A Look At XMLTerm and the "Semantic UI"

If you haven't seen the coolness that is XMLTerm, I suggest clicking on the link above immediately. XMLTerm combines the utility of a Command Line Interface with the XML and rendering capabilities of Mozilla,to create a CLI/GUI hybrid. The interface itself is a dynamic XML document!

Also included in the article is a simple XML-RPC (Remote Procedure Call) application that queries a remote server to find out its supported methods and their descriptions.

It doesn't run on the Mac version because it is just an interface to an underlying UN*X shell. Personally, I hope it gets decoupled from the actual shell (in which case it could even be used for DOS) and gets telnet capability. Now *that* would be sweet!
