[webkit-dev] How to use webkit ?

As David pointed out, the EULA does seem to prevent external use of
the WebKit and support DLL's (such as the Windows CoreGraphics
implementation).  This restriction is what caused by to re-enable the
Cairo support so I could use it on a project.

As far as the iPhone, however, I believe there is an equivalent web
interface element of some kind that allows rendering of HTML; several
of the applications you can download are clearly making use of this
type of functionality for their display.

So, without having detailed knowledge of the iPhone platform, I
*think* it provides an HTML rendering widget that is effectively the
same as WebKit.  There may be some restrictions that makes sense on a
mobile platform (perhaps limiting the damage or battery use JavaScript
code could perform, for example).

Best regards,
