    I still don't know where to start when looking at the Mozilla's layout
engine.
    And for the other HTML widgets around, basically all of them don't have
    a clear separation between the HTML parser and the layout engine so
    either you do like Amaya, and only use libwww for the network protocols,
    or it's quite a task.

    Also, both KDE and Gnome have their own HTML viewer, and their own
support
    for URLs and stuff.

    Maybe another approach could be looking at Rich Text Widget instead of
HTML
    widget. I was reading today that Qt 2.0 is out and has a Rich Text
widget. Maybe
    it's worth a look.
