AFAIK there hasn't been a decision made on this issue. Though it might
not be the best solution I can currently see them co-existing (though we
need a good documentation describing when to use which. 

GtkHtTML2 has DOM + CSS and GtkHTML1 has editing. So, imho, a GtkHTML1
port would be better for a mailer (ala Evolution) but GtkHTML2 would be
better for a browser (read-only) application.

Imho the best option would be to scrap both and use Gecko, which might
happen in the future. For those that don't know, Gecko is the rendering
widget in Mozilla (also used in Galeon).

What is it GtkHTML2 that you need that you can't find in GtkHTML1
