These settings are totally ignored by -Thtml, right?  Given the
primacy of HTML these days, we should probably take care not to

That would be lovely.  Is the prebuilt version in ASCII, postscript,
pdf, html...?  It seems to me that the ideal situation would be
to build it into html and put it on the website.

Shall I start scratching on this?  I don't think I have the original
book -- is this the Kraale book or another one?  I should try to find
a copy of the original book to have in hand.  With the precise info,
I can look around to see if I can score one.
