I've entered a new bug, number 626403, with an attached patch file
that needs to be applied before 2.4.

In doing the prior review of the reports (our earlier discussion
above), I noticed that the 'default' stylesheet formats the balance
sheet, cash flow, income statement
and transaction reports properly under webkit but not under gtkhtml.

The 'easy', 'footer', and 'technicolor' stylesheets are the reverse;
that is, they format the balance sheet, cash flow, income statement
and transaction
reports properly under gtkhtml but not under webkit, except that the
'footer' stylesheet also has some formatting problems with gtkhtml as

The patch file attached to bug 626403 corrects these problems. Specifically:

- styles that are missing in the 'footer' stylesheet (compared to 'easy') are

- the function 'gnc-html-engine-supports-css' is used in the 'default', 'easy',
'footer' and 'technicolor' stylesheets to provide styles for either webkit or

- the taxtxf.scm report file is simplified to take advantage of these changes

With this patch, all of these reports format properly with either
webkit or gtkhtml.

I would appreciate it if you or one of the other developers would
apply the patchfile.
