I don't know why that would be. It is installed with the debian package,
although as I said, it is not in the system path. I found it with dpkg
-S. Am afraid it's a long time since I used an RPM based system, so I
can't remember how do this on fedora.

Yes, I agree.

So, the question is how to enable this. One way would, for example, be
for ISWC and ESWC to accept HTML and have a prize for the best semantic
paper submitted. Then people with the inclination would do the work.

Again, I suspect it's not that much, but we will not know until we try.
