Hi Larry,

ahh yes, it is the OO implementation of creating multiple html files
from one input source file.  Effectively it writes the headers (and
footers) for each file fragment once the main html text for each
fragment has been emitted.  I guess it could be rewritten to use less
simultaneous open files..
