Although I agree we should not ship Mozilla, I think this view of
Mozilla is a bit short-sighted. First of all Mozilla is more stable on
my machine than freakin' Netscape. 

Second the Mozilla embedded widget is very stable, and despite the
good, hard work put into GTKHtml, moz has much better support for
todays internet (whether you like what people are doing with todays
internet or not). 

Last I heard GTKHtml did not even support CSS which I think is
important as the people 'in charge' of HTML are suggesting its use
more and more for style to help move people away from the over-usage of
attempting complex formatting with just HTML (yet another reason why
Netscape and IE code got bloated.. attempts at handling 'kewl tags

I know that many docs people would like to have CSS help with the
default display of the help docs.

I am all for our inclusion of Mozilla for Nautilus, but like Owen, I
think we need to take great care to make sure we are not filling with Mozilla bug reports, they just aren't ours.
