No, this behaviour is not hardcoded.  I have Iceweasel, my husband 
Google Chrome, as our default browser in KMail.  I love Konqueror and 
would myself use it from choice, but It has one crucial failing.  I 
cannot ask it to display with no style. :-( I must do a wish-bug some

been successful.  So all I can say is to reiterate that Konqueror is 
not hardcoded.  Sorry. :-(
