  Yes, they really feel strange, and possibly need a bigger overhaul in general, to match workflows (mines are not yet met). This is more a by-drive improvement while I look into getting the annotation delegate to show what I want :)

  Ehm, the KTextToHtml is used to transform all the urls into mark-uped hyperlinks, so QTextBrowser actually displays them as links (see https://api.kde.org/frameworks/kcoreaddons/html/namespaceKTextToHTML.html). Found this method when looking how KDE PIM's messagelib turns plain text into enriched HTML, which calls it.
  And while passing in potential HTML text anway, the <tt> felt more normal, as it would spare the code to look-up the system UI font set for fixed-size fonts, incl. ensuring an update of the font if systemsettings change. So with this in mind, would you still prefer some setFont()?
  BTW, in an utopian future there will be also text processor plugins which turn "BUG:xyz," "REVIEW:abc" & Co. into clickable links, perhaps even with enriched metadata pulled from the server.
