The advantage using RichText is that it's very easy to add some advanced text 
formatting to the output widget. For example I have a patch here which adds 
some coloured bullets in front of each message line. It was very easy to add 
this via the <img>-tag.

So I vote for keeping the RichText formatting in the outputwidget. I hope 
future versions of Qt don't have layout bugs anymore so the problem will 
vanish anyway.

Bye, Marcus

P.S.: I will send my coloured bullet patch for gideon to the list soon if 
anyone is interested.
