  	- include some meta-information really needed for Russian
  	  HTML-documents, otherwise some strict HTML-renderers like StarOffice
  	  or Midnight Commander assume it to be the standard ISO-..., but not
  	  the actually used koi8-r);
  	- some HOWTOs are split into several parts (files having names
  	  <name>-HOWTO-[0-9]*.html); and then the real overall title is placed
  	  into a correspondig ".dsc"-file, the TITLE-elements in each part
  	  relate usually only to that part's contents, but not the whole document
  	  (that's the situation one can observe in Russian howtos);
  	- one has to invoke the script in a subshell, otherwise the environment
  	  is spoilt after exec 1> index.html;
  	- <TITLE>the title</title> elemnts are not recognised for title
  	- and the bug I described in the previous message: in some cases, we
  	  get duplicate names for subsequent items (with different links) --
  	  in English howtos.
