I wrote the script only to then realize that netscape and lynx
_cannot_ substitute compressed "file:/" URLs, but only "http://"
URLs (it's most probably the apache server doing it for them
Here are the options:
1- Don't compress any of the mh-book package and it
will be 5.6 MB in size instead of 3.5 MB or so.
2- Put the compressed files accessible to the apache server.
(No standard place for this, right?)
3- Modify all HREF tags in all HTML files to point to
<file>.html.gz instead of <file>.html
I'm thinking Option 3, only beacuse that would save 2 MB in the
