This is really good news , unfortunately we don't have much time
and testing against Lesstif is not on the priority list even if we hope
to get compatible with it.

It's not in the binary, but it can definitely be rebuild with the Java/Kaffe
interpreter embedded. There is a few conflict since I didn't do a clean design
and makes references to Amaya functions from the libJava code.
I hope to have something clean for the next release corresponding to the
"public release" of Amaya (1.0 is currently for W3C members only) in
3 weeks. If you're really in hurry , grab the thot 2.1 code and trey to
set up the Makefile in a similar way as way for Amaya. By defining a THOT_JAVA

It needed to be compiled "by hand" yes, I don't have the code currently
but it's definitely feasible, have a look at thecompilers building
rules in makes/Imakefile, set up something similar to it for html2thot,
the binary will produce a .PIV file from ann HTML input.
