Sorry to come in so late on this, but I this looks very much like a very
large sledgehammer to me. On my home system (ignoring for the moment the
fact that only dpkg so far has installed html files - probably because
that's the only package I've really kept up-to-date, apart from those I
maintain), if I need to look at a html file, I just fire up Lynx in the
appropriate directory:

lynx index.html

or something like that. Works fine for me. If I'm not in the right
directory, something like:

lynx /usr/doc/dpkg/programmer/index.html

should also work (though I haven't really had occasion to check it out :)

Who needs Netscape, anyway? :)
