completed by: Mohammed Nafees

mentors: Torsten Rahn, René Küttner, Dennis Nienhüser

In this task you're supposed to write a render plugin: A float item similar to a the compass or the overview map.

This float item is supposed to contain a webview that shows HTML documents.

As an example download the mobile version of the Wikipedia article about the town "Madrid"

Save it and make the webview display all the parts that are part of the local HTML document  inside the float item.The content inside the float item should be scrollable via scroll bars if the text exceeds the available amount of space.

The API of the float item should allow to "feed" the view with the HTML content via a simple QString or a QUrl as a parameter.

 The float item is NOT supposed to have a configuration widget.
