Hi, I've been doing some investigation of HTML view components for gtk+, and I've seen several mentions that Evolution is going to move from GtkHtml3 to WebKit. I've looked at the API for the GTK port, and I don't see any equivalent to the "link_clicked" signal handling capabilities of GtkHtml--even in the core C++ API.
Question #1: If Evo goes to WebKit, how will this functionality be implemented in terms of WebKit? Is there plans to add it already? I have asked Alp Toker a similar question, but I haven't seen a reply yet. I have noticed that Android's implementation of WebKit does include such an API handler, but it doesn't seem to be part of the main WebKit codebase (based on a few recursive greps for shouldOverrideUrlLoading). So far, none of the available alternatives to GtkHTML seem to provide such a hook, including mozilla, which has an open bug on the functionality being missing. I'm working on a prototype hypermedia application with a lot of internal links, and I don't want to go to the effort of implementing a custom protocol handler for mozilla (or, I'm guessing WebKit has something similar too) when the linked-clicked functionality does the job brilliantly. Any info or thoughts you have on the above would be most appreciated. Question #2: If I'm going to be "stuck" with GtkHTML, where would one begin to add CSS support? GtkHTML2 isn't a runner--it can't even do selections properly. In a *very* quick scan through the current SVN source, it looks like there's a lot of work done already to isolate styles into the HTMLStyle and HTMLEngine classes. Obviously, this isn't trivial or it would've been done before, but I was just trying to get some kind of idea. Any thoughts on this would also be appreciated. Thanks for your time, ast -- Andrew S.
