I cannot agree with Nico's suggestion to add HTMLDOC as a dependency.
I'm leaving the bug open, so other editor's can make the final decision,
but I found no need for the software. There's a .shtml file created in
the test directory that contains all the test result information and
is easily viewed using Lynx. I'm sure other browsers work as well.

HTMLDOC is *not* free software, as far as I'm concerned it's not needed
and shouldn't be recommended as a required dependency. It *could* be
listed as an optional dependency, but the fact that you have to *buy* it,
simply to do something that isn't really necessary, make me wonder.
