Sorry, but I don't think you see the idea I wanted to explain : use
abiword to ease the web publishing process of *editors*. I don't want to
use it to create html pages, but to let non technical users create
content with an easy to use wysiwyg tool. The output of abiword (either
xml or limited xhtml) would be included in the site using common
templating technics / xml preprocessing, etc....

That's what I meant :)
I see a use for abiword as a replacement for dumb text area in web
browsers for non IT people posting content to their websites.

I still think it does, but probably I didn't explain clearly enough.
Look at http://www.ektron.com/ewebeditpro.cfm?doc_id=1841 , for similar
fucntionality. Here, instead of using java applets, we'd use abiword.
