Yes, it was an xml file (I even have some examples here), but I do not
really remember where I got it from, and the current texshow does not
use that stuff.

The best way to fix the offline texshow IMO would be to write it
anew, in ruby, and make it use an offline (perhaps flat text or xml) 
representation of your database that it converts to html pages
for a local browser (using some variant of http://localhost:xx/).

That way some of your code can be reused, and the database dump
could perhaps even be sync-ed online, if the local user has a net
connection.
