Is this documentation available under devhelp, and if so, which package do I
need to install in order to see it ? (My devhelp provides me all my gtk
documentation, but it can't locate any webkitgtk help. :-( )

Doesn't appear to be available on either my Fedora or Debian system, so
I guess the webkitgtk tarball itself doesn't provide Gtk-Doc files and
they're generating the website docs through some other means.

ok, thanks.

as a related query, I note that (in Fedora F15 repository) there is both a
webkitgtk and also webkitgtk3

What's the difference ?

I'm just guessing that webkitgtk3 if your application uses gtk3 and webkitgtk
otherwise. I am further guessing/hoping that the webkitgtk/webkitgtk3 api's are
identical, so moving from one to the other is just a matter of changing teh
includes/links.

Can anyone confirm this please?

Thank you, and all the best,

Correct that webkitgtk links to gtk2 and webkitgtk3 links to gtk3.
Whether the APIs are identical I can't say, but I imagine they're only
trivially different if not identical.
