I managed to create an Offline Lyrics window which will show song lyrics saved as *.html files.



Obviously, this approach is combined with some work on the user's side, because you will have to copy and paste the text lines into fresh created *.html files. But this is all. Once you have created the default.html file, the only work will be to google the lyrics and copy/paste them into the *.html file in the song's folder. I am planing to add a short tutorial on how to create the default file, which will be shown in the Lyrics window while playing a song with no attached lyrics file.

Why *.html file, you might ask? It has a "cosmetic" reason. Using a plain *.txt file we would end up with boring white background and black text, while the appearance of a *.html file can be endlessly altered. The default.html file will provide the same colors as used in my skin. Nevertheless, you are welcome to change the looks of those lyrics files to your liking (in case you have basic HTML skills).
