[webkit-dev] WebKit-GTK in embedded system

Indeed WebKit seems like overkill for what we need.  I was aware of GtkHTML but not of this web site.  I posted a message to the GTK App Devel list about the apparent dearth of HTML support in GTK and about the fact that GtkHTML in particular came with no usage documentation whatsoever.  No one there pointed me to any form of documentation but I received a number of recommendations to use WebKit.

Does this documentation apply to the Gnome version of GtkHTML or some other version?  The Gnome version is stated to be Evolution-specific, not a general-purpose library.  If this documents some other version, where might I find it?

A number of small simple html renderer's exist that should meet your
needs given
the description you gave. I'm surprised you would want to use webkit.

This one for example.
