KHTML is a free HTML rendering engine, developed by the KDE project. It is mainly used in web browsers such as Konqueror and served as the basis for WebKit. KHTML is written in C and released under the GNU Lesser General Public License ( LGPL).
KHTML supports the following technologies:
- HTML 4.01
- CSS 1 and 2.1 ( CSS 3 selectors )
- Bidirectional scripts (eg Hebrew)
- Non- standardized extensions of Internet Explorer from Microsoft
Was introduced into practice KHTML in KDE version 2.0.
KHTML on other platforms
KHTML was the first rendering engine since version 3.5, the so-called Acid2 test, which correct for a presentation requires both highest standards compliance as well as the correct handling of incorrect HTML and CSS code.
