Can you give me some examples where it breaks down for you? I kind of like it for complex sentences. I think I could create an SVG-based version that has the same advantages, putting the text on the left, growing the tree to the right, keeping analysis nodes as close to the text as possible rather than as close to the initial S as possible.

That is, mousing over a word might not only display its morphological parsing, but also highlight the relevant higher nodes. Also mousing over some node might highlight relevant lower nodes. Also displaying different types of nodes in different colors might be helpful. Some functionlity of such kind has been implemented in Logos and Accordance Bible softeare packages.
SVG and tree display do have real advantages - easier to email, modify with an SVG editor, etc; allow interaction along the lines of what you describe above. I don't actually have a copy of either Logos or Accordance, I should find a way to play with them and learn from them.
