HTMLayout's features etc[edit]

I can't cite my own experiences with HTMLayout in the article, but I will mention here that I've personally used it. It's good at the specific thing it was written for - to be small and light.

HTMLayout embeds fairly easily into any compiled program; although the authors didn't seem to put much effort into supporting anything other than the one platform (language/compiler/etc) that they use, it does work. It's one of the easiest ways to write a simple application that has a quick renderer for tagged text - just use HTMLayout and simple HTML markup, rather than building your own format or using something heavy like Trident.

I am the author of the HTMLayout. HTMLayout is a Windows wrapper around h-smile core that is (the core) platform independent. Linux port is in progress so far.

Notability concerns[edit]

HTMLayout holds a particular place in the spectrum of layout engines. It is notable as a member of a group, and one which offers something that other members don't. Yes, there are a number of open source and freely available HTML renderers, but this one is the only one that you can simply drop in and compile against without including an enormous weight of gunk.

However, it does desperately need another editor to look it over. Hopefully someone who has used it as a browser, as I've only used it as a simple renderer. Use of HTMLayout to render a block of text is as simple as linking against an import library, creating the window, and calling HTMLayoutLoadHtml().

Conflict of Interest[edit]

I've removed a whole lot of the links that are relatively superfluous. If anyone wants to hunt them down again, they're in this version; some of them may be of value as footnote references. Rosuav (talk) 10:24, 21 October 2008 (UTC)
