That far back you are probably thinking of the Mozilla plugin.  Mozilla
removed the ability to be embedded in anything a long time ago; we
couldn't reactivate that plugin even if we wanted to.

Best way forward is with Webkit; if I remember correctly there was an old
RFE years back to add a Webkit renderer but no one was interested in
financing the work so it went nowhere.

Let's worry about R14 short term, then we can see if there is interest in
moving to Webkit after that.  That is a large project, so either we need
several dedicated people working on it or it needs to be handled via the
RFE system--obviously the "hope someone picks it up and works on it"
approach isn't working for this task. ;-)

Web developers, can you see if there is any way to modify the site
slightly so that Konqueror can render it properly?  If it helps I noticed
something similar in Firefox when I had two nested tables in the body, so
perhaps something isn't 100% correct in the CSS?
