Notes

  1. ^ KHTML does not have any native image support. This is by design: in Konqueror, multimedia files are handled by KParts. The KDE project also developed an SVG plugin for Konqueror, known as KSVG.[o 1]
  2. ^ — Presto does not scale the image properly if its size is given in relative units.
  3. ^ , — KSVG does not scale the image properly if its size is given in relative units.
  4. ^ list-style-image — WebKit does render the image if its size is given in relative units.[w 1]
  5. ^ Renesis 0.7 supports that feature, but because of the rewrite of the plugin Renesis 1.0 doesn't support this any longer.[o 2]
