Its not really buggier - but the gtkhtml has a few rendering issues. These are
just a FEW I encountered while working on gnome-db2html2 (I mail'd the gtkhtml
crew about this today):

1) Tables do not render correctly in some cases

2) No support for the <sup> HTML tag (superscript)

3) &mdash; and &hellip; entities do not work (they do not render in netscape
either - only in mozilla)
