I have to agree, that the current html3.2 display is a bit outdated. And I wanted to try integrate
the jfx browser to see, how much we would have to change.

We could use the browser for the printable docs, which would allow us to switch to a more
modern html code for the docs. 

The jfx browser could also help with the current bug with the unbalanced parentheses in the
css stylesheet.

Javafx should be doable with java 7, too.
But we would have to add the jfxrt.jar (or whatever it is called) top the classpath when running/compiling
on java 7.
