 (perfect power user job).
 > Here the list of failing HTML files in 6.5.svn: d.graph.rst, d.his.rst,
 d.linegraph.rst, d.mapgraph.rst, d.menu.rst, d.out.file.rst,
 d.text.freetype.rst, g.gisenv.rst, g.message.rst, grass6.rst,
 g.region.rst, i.ortho.photo.rst, m.proj.rst, ps.map.rst, r.category.rst,
 r.coin.rst, r.cost.rst, r.distance.rst, r.in.gdal.rst, r.in.xyz.rst,
 r.mfilter.fp.rst, r.mfilter.rst, r.out.gdal.rst, r.proj.rst, r.ros.rst,
 r.spreadpath.rst, r.spread.rst, r.terraflow.rst, r.tileset.rst,
 r.watershed.rst, r.what.rst, v.label.rst, v.lidar.correction.rst,
 v.lidar.edgedetection.rst, v.lidar.growing.rst, v.outlier.rst,
 v.reclass.rst, v.segment.rst, v.surf.bspline.rst.

 all of the above should (now) be html bug-free, as checked by dillo's lint

 if that is so and all is valid HTML, remaining problems should are for the
 sphinx people to fix IMO.

 specifically, bolds and newlines need work.
