[webkit-dev] Qt 4.4 Embedded with WebKit

Hi all,

This might not be the right forum for this question, but I'll ask it
here all the same. If it's not the appropriate forum for this
question, I'd be grateful if somebody could let me know where a better
place to try asking it is.

I've just cross-compiled and installed Qt 4.4 Embedded on a prototype
ARM-based device. Both the build and the install seemed to go OK. I'm
particularly interested in using the new integrated WebKit offered by
Qt 4.4. I started up webviewer, the little demo browser app that comes
with Qt 4.4 Embedded, and pointed it at some HTML files I had on the
local file system (using file:///).

In short, the rendering is really bad. WebKit seems to parse HTML and
display its content, but it doesn't seem to understand or apply even
the simplest CSS rules. I've tried external, embedded, and inline
style sheets for simple things like setting the size, position, and
background color of <div> elements, and nothing seems to work. I can't
believe that WebKit doesn't have CSS support.

Has anybody else seen anything like this? Any ideas on what's
happening or how to make this work?
