I will do one. The problem is that Arena still has a lot of really nasty
bugs, e.g. when dealing with Forms. Anyhow, we should include Arena as
the standard WWW client to view our HTML documentation on X.

Anyone interested in developing a style file for Debian HTML documentation?

Another thing is that the png library from the libgr package is not 
up to date and doesn't work correctly with Arena (at least for interlaced
PNG images).
