I spent some time this week on the HTML parser module to
help the implementation of gtkhtml2. It now autoadds

debug. Well excepts all the tests for proper encoding inside
the parser itself :-\ ...

back in France that I don't have to worry about connection

Oh and I will be at OLS, my ticket confirmation is just
pending a return flight Boston->Europe, so I should be set
