Template name should be "Layout engines"[edit]

Template name should be "HTML layout engines"[edit]

"Layout engines" is too general and non-specific for the general Wikipedia audience. This template is about HTML layout engines or at most you can say about "layout engines for markup languages" or "markup layout engines" or "layout markup engines." If you don't agree, then you should include things like UI toolkits, graphics libraries like Cairo, LaTeX, ghostscript etc, everything capable of taking some code and producing visual layout. So, it is better to rename this template to more accurate "HTML layout engines." – Aaditya_7 13:47, 7 April 2018 (UTC)

I agree with a rename but to "Web browser engines" which is the nomenclature used throughout Wikipedia. So I went ahead and did this rename. -Pmffl (talk) 17:19, 18 April 2018 (UTC)

KHTML is not discontinued?[edit]

Currently on this template KHTML is under the discontinued section, however the last commit was a day ago. The wikipedia article says "Although it has not seen significant development since 2016,[1] it is still actively maintained...". I don't know how exactly this project works but wouldn't this engine still be at least accepting merge requests from its forks? --Mattbell87 (talk) 11:56, 14 February 2020 (UTC)
