Systems Biology Markup Language (SBML) <http://sbml.org/> is a mixed bag as
an example for a handler. On the one hand, it appears to be very rich and
capable of describing models that are way too complex to be desribed via a
program. On the other, sometimes it describe chemical reactions or process
that have relatively succinct notational descriptions that could be coverted
to words. Eg, see
I don't know enough about biology or SBML to say whether this is normal or
an exceptional case. There seem to be quite a number of piecies of software
that make use of it.
Chemical Markup Language <http://cml.sourceforge.net/main.html> (CML) looks
very promising as an example handler. There is at least one applet viewer
for web pages (which has no keyboard navigation I could find. It is called
JChemPaint and here's a page on embedding it in a web page (mostly just how
to embed an applet):
Here's a demo page which kind of shows the navigation/interaction
possibilities (but isn't accessible as far as I can tell).
Also, I think that JCehmPaint can read several formats besides CML, and in
the above example, it appears to be reading a .mol file which is not part of
