Re: PROPOSAL: Evolution for GNOME 2.6

Yeah, embedding the editor (Composer) is currently "Very Difficult If
Not Impossible" according to
Fortunately, that page was recently modified (end of October 2003) and
it appears that the Mozilla folks are actively looking at addressing the
issue. I doubt it will be done in the GNOME 2.6 timeframe, however.

I agree that is not for 2.6 timeframe. (Probably trying to port yelp to
gecko would be more feasible).

Unfortunately I am not sure connecting the gecko ATK work in a plugin environment has ever been attempted. I made the point early on that this was desirable, so with luck it should be possible, but I doubt that it would be practical in a 2.6 timeframe either. Keep in mind that the accessibility code in Mozilla had to interoperate with MSAA on Windows, so the ATK support is not at all straightforward in its implementation; Mozilla implements its own 'nsiAccessible' interfaces which are bridged to ATK.
