 Is it possible to display Css style tags in a text view..? The method
Html.fromhtml() converts only html tags to a spanned string but not
the Css styles

 To answer your question, nope. Html.fromHtml() is exactly that: HTML.
Some sort of HtmlAndCss.fromMarkup() or something would be really
useful for lazy UI designers but you need to keep in mind that using
things like HTML and CSS in a application built for a certain set of
devices running a certain system just won't feel native to your users--
and native apps are something users tend to prefer.

Try searching first next time, CSS questions pop up all the time on

 Oh, also: there is the WebView option, although I don't like
advocating this--again, not native. For example the DropBox
application--I downloaded and installed it and finally launched it to
see a WebView: "WTF? I could have quickly gone to dropbox.com in
Browser for this."

It runs finalizers.  You probably are either causing the gc to run (you can
tell from the log) or have some finalizer getting stuck (look at the threads
in the de{*filter*}).
