That would be fine *except* that, if you saw the earlier part of
Bill's email, you'll know that we probably intend to use gtkhtml's
facilities to embed gtk objects within a web page.  Konqueror is
unlikely to support this ability - Qt objects maybe, gtk not likely :)

Additionally, unless you were porting gnucash to Qt, why would you *want* to do
this?  This is an honest question, BTW, not a flame.

Yes, but you can't dynamically create new panes, merge them back
together, and such with straight HTML.
