libgtkhtml better than I thought

May 27, 2010 — BarryK
I had previously stated that libgtkhtml does not support CSS or DOM:

...I had read that online, however it seems that applies to libgtkhtml1, whereas we have libgtkhtml2, version 2.11.1.

Although there is a lack of documentation and examples, the source package does have some examples, and from these I was able to glean some of the nice things it can handle...

It does support quite a lot of CSS1 and CSS2.
...hmmm, I wonder if it would be good enough for the CUPS web interface?

I was able to add a printer with surfer in quirky1.1 but I couldn't open /usr/share/doc/index.html. It just froze."27 May 2010, 11:32"01619"'whoami"jrb2"BTW - I'm actually just jrb.
