I fully agree with this web-site design as well.  But when you post here
a link to source Elisp code, you should expect people to want to look at
it inside Emacs rather than inside a browser.  So you should send a URL
to the actual Elisp file, to to its HTML rendering.

And remember, it was just a nitpick.  You've blown it way out
of proportion.
