Hey! Gift Horse... Deal! :-)

Not really, but as it's omission was an oversight I'll keep it in mind for
the next round of updates. Unless I'm misremembering badly this should be a
pure HTML change to the file-upload.html page and some minor "mechanical"
changes to the code, but it must still be tested etc. so it takes a little
longer  the just making the changes.

Yeah. This was what made the DOCTYPE override necessary in the first place
so this is definitely on the TODO. I think the plan is to give the code
some shakeout time and then add a textarea. I'm unable to do much right now
for various practical reasons and I think Gerald is busy with various other
duties, but as a loose guess it might get done sometime over the next month
or so (but don't hold me to that! ;D).
