since it's supposed to be multiplatform probably is not reasonable
expecting that for instance a gtk widget has the exact set of tags
supported of qtextbrowser, since it's unlikely t use a full web
browser widget like webkit for that.
moreover things like <font> would drive to situations like black text
on black background
