  • I've been bitten too many times by problems with CSS layout compatibility issues, and I find it an amusing double standard that GTK packing boxes are "good" but what amounts to HTML packing boxes (albeit also ones that can be used to display tabular data) are "bad".

    Because the one's a document and the other is a GUI. If I wanted to display a document, I wouldn't use GTKs box model. That's like back in the old days when we just crammed huge texts into VB dialog boxes. If I wanted to display any kind of document (that doesn't already provide a widget), I'd use HTML, even in GTK, KDE, or anything else.

    That said, I have no problem in putting a webpage in a big table. I have a problem with 22 nested tables.
