I'm a beginning programmer who is seeking some help on a small personal project
that I've been working on lately. I'm attempting to add an extended functionality
to a basic document text editor. I essentially need to do three things to
complete this project:

1. What I want to do is create a floating table over a basic DOCUMENT text
application (editor). The catch is that I want each cell to have a unique
id (x,y) coordiates, which appear in a box at the top of the editor. Hence,
when I want to access a given location, I can just type in a given set of
coordinates and I will be taken to that location. I guess the other thing
is that the lines have to be transparent because I still need to be able
to read the lines of text below the table. Note: this application will be
used to open large research papers that are done in txt format.

The table should also resize dynamically, based on the size of the document
and scroll along with the document, in effect having each cell hold the same
position within the lines of text irrespective of where i scroll to. Basically
I want the table to flow with the lines of text.

2. I'm attempting put together the code that would allow me to merge and
image (e.g. jpg or bmp) in an XML document (via user interface).

3. What I want to do is integrate a conversion engine in a document text
editor that would allow me to create XML documents. Hence, I want to be able
to input text in the document editor, save this text and then convert it
to XML.

Does anyone know if something like this or if this is even possible?

Let me know if there is anything that i can do for you.
