Good rework. Especially the index.htm is now much more readable.

[dd] Probably inserted by my system, didn't even see them.

[dd] True, but we need to decide whether to have the source there, both 
for Java and ECMA, just in case people want to write their own harness. 
I'd go for including them, which is why I had them in my distribution 
sent earlier.

[jb] The source is still available in the .html files.  Having one version of the source files (in HTML) is the best option, I believe.
