That is right:

With version 3.14.0 GtkHTML printing is done with the help of GtkPrint 
(added in gtk+ 2.10.0).  Somehow this support was kind of broken when I 
looked at it the last time, because everything was printed to only one 
page and characters were black-filled boxes only.  Maybe some 
cairo/gtk+/gtkhtml update fixed this.

There seems to be only one really annoying issue with the GtkHTML 
version we currently ship, which is that it seems to dislike activated 
advanced features of some printers (glyphs are drawn up-side-down). 
Feel free to take a better look at it :-)
