Still, there's a major, higher issue here. 
We want to maintain the domination of macosx in terms of ease of use.

Ive run through all the html-files ive found inside Html with a sed
script, and looked at a few of them from some SC_Help:w3m buffer, they

Im not sure how various developers generate the html which gets
included, but i guess a translation-script could be handy for others as
well.  This script only substitutes the p-tags for now.

Using <pre>'s (difficult?)  and changing the Helper class (easy) comes
later.  See comments to begin with for applying to a directory-tree (ie
