He's applied Liam's "HTTP Host header" patch to nsgmls; not the rest of
Liam's changes. The only changes are the name and the fact that lq-nsgmls
sends a HOst header when it goes out to fetch a DTD off the net. (i.e. It's
not really "lq-nsgmls"; it's "nsgmls with Liam Quinn patches")

Well, since this isn't actually lq-nsgmls, the friendly output from Liam's
version isn't a problem. You can use plain vanilla nsgmls.exe just fine.
