Re: HTML Widget / Embedded Browser

* muppet <scott asofyet org>:

[1] there was indeed a gtkhtml2, but this project appears to have been
abandoned in favor of gtkhtml3.  this is the common wisdom from this mailing
list, i cannot confirm these facts personally.

i have since learned that the story goes more like this:

gtkhtml1 was good for displaying html.
gtkhtml2 contains editing support.
gtkhtml3 is the modern port of gtkhtml1.

thus, it is conceivable that bindings for both gtkhtml2 and gtkhtml3 may

Reading on the various mailing list regarding this issue, I'd suggest to
create at least a gtkhtml2 binding; gtkhtml1 does not have any support
for CSS/DOM, even if it has editing support. gtkhtml3 is currently used
only in Evolution, AFAIR.

we also have no modern port of GtkMozEmbed.

I've just looked at gtkmozembed.h (via CVS), and it seems to use gtk
1.2.  Creating the binding should be easy, but it would require the
download of the entire mozilla source tarball, and adding a dependency
on the entire mozilla binary tarball (until the people
create a Gecko Runtime Environment).
