Great idea... now if only it worked on the version of Emacs I have!

If psgml will work (and work on Mac and PC versions of Emacs like
html-mode does...) then I agree we should quit supporting html-mode.

Anyway... I think I'll keep my hack to myself for now. Sounds like
the features are already available with html-helper-mode.
