We *do* want both CSS and DOM for the help stuff (at least).

I fail to see the point in porting KHTML when we have both GtkHTML1 and
GtkHTML2, OK they might not do everything just as well as KHTML but they
are both pretty good.

Does KHTML have CSS, DOM and editing (all three of which we do need).

The problem is that we don't have anyone interested in hacking on these
projects. If we had that person GtkHTML would probably render just as
good as KHTML.
