As others have suggested, using a KHTML widget might be easier than trying 
to embed Konqueror (which itself uses a KHTML part to display HTML). 
On Windows, you might be able to use the Qt's Active X facilities to 
embed IE, and you might get quite far on the Mac by using the QXEmbed 
class from PyKDE's kdeui module. 
The PyKDE distribution includes example code for both KHTML and QXEmbed, 
so it shouldn't be too hard to get something working on Linux and Mac OS X. 
Either way, you'll probably need PyKDE on those platforms. 
Ask again if you need more help, and let us all know how you get on.
