Thanks Mike, I had been thinking of it, but forgot to mention it eventually.

Yes, using the eguile code will help us fix one part of the issue. It 
would indeed be much easier to insert css code in it. And the good news 
here is that we already have an eguile based invoice report. So there is 
very little left to do on the gnucash side for this particular use case.

The bug in webkit remains though. It will have to be worked around by 
postprocessing (with for example wkhtmltopdf) or our print process will 
have to bypass webkit. In theory what R. Victor Klassen proposed could 
work as well: pre-process the html code before handing it over to 
webkit. But I'm not sure that's easily accomplished in a cross-platform
