There is a news item on the blog of Oliver Ruiz Dorantes.

He states he now have all the necessary widgets in the libwalter library to construct a Look-Only basic OOffice prototype (no real coding underneath).

[UPDATE-071216] Oliver himself drop in a comment to tell us that I was wrong in some ways.  The text rendering is made by the software and all the text and style modifications (font color, size, … ) is actually done using the application itself.  The format can also be changed using the controls !  He also added that “…unless saving and loading capabilities.. would be usable now…”  (This time, I’m happy to be wrong :-)

Here is the Looking Candidate running in Haiku.

On his blog you can also find a picture of the prototype running in BeOS as well as some information about the widgets being used.
