The new build process uses the HTMLonly and nonHTML flags to exclude
tests from inappropriate build formats. So, nonHTML tests won't be
converted to HTML, and HTMLonly tests won't appear in the XHTML versions.

Just checked in fixes for handling "may" and "should". Thanks for the
reminder.

I've reorganized James' tests to match the approved/ directory,
and copied over all the test suite's support files so that they're
available there. I've also fixed the test to use a relative URL.

SGML comments should now be preserved across conversion under the
new build system. :)
