QTextBrowser can handle a subset of HTML (http://doc.trolltech.com/4.2/richtext-html-subset.html).

If you use Windows w/ the commercial Windows desktop Qt version, you can use QAxWidget's, which can load ActiveX objects that support [virtually] fully-compliant HTML (such as the IE browser, firefox/mozilla browser, etc). Unfortunately ActiveX is Windows-only.

I am not sure how the other platforms best handle displaying HTML with the minimum amount of effort.

Hmm... judging by lack of response, I suspect that people typically just don't embed fullscale html browser widgets inside desktop apps. If they need browser functionality, they probably use java or some other sort of web technology.
