Originally intended as a simple semantic markup for a hypertext system used by physicists, HTML has since become more complex and widespread. Over time, HTML's document markup has proven useful outside of a web browser, and is now often used as a commonly understood minilanguage for general text markup (as in a text control), or to manage a series of hyperlinked pages (as in a help system). In wxPython, there are a number of features dedicated to managing your HTML needs within your application. You can display simple HTML in a window, follow hyperlinks, create your own HTML help pages, and even embed a more fully featured browser if you need more complexity.
