Yes. Specifically, we have an editing *library* upon which one can build editing applications.
One of the project goal is to build on or more such applications; two ideas that have been
discussed are a Qt-based native app, and a web app which can run in a browser.

Yes, although the actual rendering is handled by the browser’s rendering engine (e.g. WebKit/Gecko),
not Corinthia itself.

Not sure what you mean by “selection” here - there’s no *detection* of file types, though
it would be correct to say that there are filters for different mime types (file formats).
The filter invoked for a conversion is determined by the file extension.
