I'm not saying porting all HTML to widgets... but the other (widgets to HTML) 
is probably unnecessary and sometimes bad.

This case is because of a Qt bug that I already patched on qt-copy. I also 
informed qt-bugs about the issue.

They hardcoded Qt::blue when a link came, instead of using the link palette

We are safe, this change does not reach stylesheets :) I thought it could, but 
it definetly doesn't. :)

Well, to be honest, the widget one fixed could be comfortable.

Okay, I agree it can be improved. Well, as apaku later suggests it can be 
improved, but there is no need currently to move it to HTML code.

Probably on the long term HTML tags are better, but I really prefer HTML to 
web sites. I don't know, I just feel strange using HTML for such stuff.

BTW, I am going to give a try to what apaku points later on the reply.

Thanks Urs for your work, really. Rereading my mail I think it could have 
sounded rude. It wasn't in that way, but exact the opposite.

Bye and thanks,
