You're welcome. It was fun doing it.

Thanks for the quick check.

I had merged that file inside md5.h. However, I think that I made one change
inside HTDigest.h rather than HTDigest.html, which explains why I could
compile it without problems. Murphy's law :-/

I just commited the check.

Also, there was a typo in my last file. I tested my implementation
against Agranat's test site [1], and not against Agrawal (a 
known personality from the Distributed Systems field).
