Well, amongst the differences is the file at
http://www.cmc.net/~bem/vile/ispell-html-mode.patch (not my patch...
but I dug through Altavista for a long time trying to find it so wanted
it indexed more...) That adds the -h flag.
Last time this came up, I mailed the above URL to the ispell packager
and he decided it was worthwhile. You won't see it on an 'upstream'
ispell since there hasn't been an update to ispell in ages. (It hasn't
really -needed- one, 'cept maybe for HTML mode...)
