dear Chippy, Andrew, all,

Right, we found the likely cause of your html-parsing issue and have 
reinstated the HTML option in the form-based interface.


Otherwise, that page has been expanded to explain the different options, 
hopefully somewhat clearly. The main outstanding caveat is that if you 
use the 'XML' document type option, but the document isn't well-formed 
XML, you'll still see the unfriendly error.

Next step is to trap the different error states better, but that will 
take longer to resolve working with our partners in this part of the 
project, the wonderful people at the Language Technology Group in the 
University of Edinburgh's School of Informatics.
