Ah, I was only talking about 2.x GNOME ones. libgtkxmhtml1 is gtkhtml1 in
Debian-speak - it was the GTK+ 1.x version of gtkhtml3; gtkhtml2 is a
totally different codebase that was at one point going to replace gtkhtml1,
but it didn't have editing, which the Evo dudes need, so they had to port
gtkhtml1 when they ported Evo to GTK+ 2.x; that became gtkhtml3. gtkhtml2 is
the only one that has css/dom/a11y support. :-)

Yes, this is crazy.
