The HTML _parser_ (HTML.c) produces a parsed output which can either be put to 
the screen or directed to the outout stream of the request object. For 
example, it can be to a file.

If you are thinking of the HTML _generator_ (HTMLGen.c) produces HTML markup. 
The input to the HTML generator can for example be a FTP directory listing 
which we want to convert into HTML before presenting it to the user. This is 
done by the HTFTPDir and the HTDir modules.

Does this answer your question?
