Actually it has become much better since Rik's work on regexp functions,
which came after Søren's implementation. So generate_html could be simplified
a lot if someone would like to work on it.

That's a good point that I had missed. As the process for generating html docs 
includes running the demos, you need a WORKING installation of ALL packages in 
order to produce the html docs and that's difficult (if at all possible) to get 
on a single system.
