I don't really like that approach.

htmldoc's output looks like some web page printed from the browser
which does not surprise since it's essentially the same function in a
command line utility.

That alternative approach will be a nice workaround, but I'd
appreciate getting the "real" toolchain to work because I hope the
output will look better.
