libgtkhtml better than I thought

I had previously stated that libgtkhtml does not support CSS or DOM:
http://bkhome.org/blog/?viewDetailed=01608

...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?

surfer & cups
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.

Re Surfer
I also tried Surfer with the CUPS web interface in Quirky 1.1.x, it got stuck at one of the buttons.

/usr/share/doc/index.html has some Javascript, that Surfer chokes on.

gtkhtml with lua
It's too bad we don't include lua any more

lua-gtk is fairly small and supports gtkhtml

http://lua-gtk.luaforge.net/en/ex_raedic.html

also supports (as needed)
* atk
* cairo
* clutter
* gconf
* gdk
* gio
* glib
* gnet
* gtk
* gtkhtml
* gtksourceview
* gtkspell
* libxml2
* pango
