To close the loop on this, I've been able to get the latest 32-bit beta 
of Seamonkey (2.9beta4, tar file downloaded directly from mozilla.org, 
not anyone's RPM) to work, after installing a batch of 32-bit libs and 
dependencies. Thanks to Clint Dilks and John R. Pierce for a little 
coaching on identifying the necessary libs.

J.S. Evans suggested kompozer (http://www.kompozer.net/). This turned 
out to be a 32-bit app as well, but, even after installing a batch of 
32-bit libs, it fails to load, and without presenting any error messages 
at all--just fails.

Thanks, all.
