Very true, you're pretty much limited to C++ or javascript. That's
exactly why we use those two languages to access the DOM in aspnetedit

I created a little C++ interop library that lets C# call javascript
functions by injecting special nodes into the DOM. Then all the code
that needs to access the DOM can be in javascript functions that I can
call from C#. I know of a couple of other people who have used this
library. Obviously the mono-xpcom bridge library would be a better
solution, but I don't know enough of the details of XPCOM to bring it
up to a usable state.

See http://compsoc.dur.ac.uk/~mjh/journal/2005-08-07/it_lives for some
more info.
