If it easy for you then send the two files you have changed and the a diff of 
the rest. That would make it easy to put them on our server immediately. Maybe 
you can make a small HTML file explaining what you have done so that this can 
go along with it?

The lack of features in the HTML module keeps coming back as a nightmare. We 
are awokring on a new GUI client but it will not come out until later this 
strong. I do not have any easy solution for now, so I guess that we'll have to 
live with that. My planning is rather caotic right now, but maybe somebody 
else have a patch???

Anyway, thanks a lot Maciej for the good work!
