Themis does not use most of the BeOS UI Elements but it's own for some 
reasons. This is the result of more than one month of discussion, researches 
and tests. ;-] Net+ is doing the same thing: it has only one BView in which 
it draws everything. that's why I need a Text rendering system which behaves 
like BTextView but is not BTextView. I'll only use some parts of it.
