HTML problems in draft



There are some HTML problems with the draft.

First, http://validator.w3.org/ complains becaure there is
no character encoding specification, and the file contains
an invalid UTF-8 character (where UTF-8 is the default).
The problem is the ø in Søren, which appears to be Latin-1
instead.  See: http://validator.w3.org/docs/help.html#faq-charset

Using an entity is the most robust solution:
  Jens Axel Søgaard

Spececifying iso-8859-1 lets us continue.
"This page is not Valid HTML 4.01 Transitional!".

In addition, there are lots of near-empty paragraphs:
<p>
</p>
<p>
</p>
<p>
</p>
These may be technically valid, but it's pretty gross.

The page is generated using tex2page; perhaps there are bugs in
tex2page; or it was invoked incorrectly.

Another issue: To satisfy SRFI template requirements, there are
fake commented-out HTML headers, such as for <H1>Authors</H1>. A cleaner
solution, I think, is to use CSS, like I did in srfi-64:
