Has anyone here ever attempted to take a snapshot of a url and save it to a handle?

Hey, I think you may be confused as to whet libRocket is.
It is not a html rendering engine. It renders something that closesly resembles html, called rml. It also uses somethign that closesly resembles css, called rcss. In no way can it be used to render a normal website.

Im sorry I described this very wrong.
I am trying to take a html file and turn it into a texture.

Yes, I understood that, but libRocket cannot do that. It can turn an rml file into a texture, but not a normal html file. For that you could use something like berkelium, awesomeium, or just a direct integration of webkit.
