Sat down with Ettore today and tried to discuss medium to long term hacking plans. Not sure how I feel about the results. I guess only time will tell.
The gtkhtml refactoring is coming along pretty well. I removed some of the oldest most painful code last week. The parser should be a lot easier to work on now. Next I need to go in and clean up a few of the special cases that still rely on the old logic. It feels good to finally be addressing some of the really old problems but it also feels too late. I guess I'll keep working on it as long as it is fun.
So it seems I actually got better.
