I don't understand you here.  What's the exact error you're getting?

Well, I just updated HTMLFormatter a little while ago, and haven't
tried it out yet.  I don't understand you problem with it yet, though.
As for the list->lst problem, I did notice that last week, but I
hadn't gotten around to making the change in my checked out version
and checking it in, I'd only made the fix in a running version.  Note
that the CVS tree is not garunteed to be in a state that will run
whatsoever, though we do try to keep it that way.  We only do lots of
testing when it comes time for an actual release. (And even then we
don't always catch everything).
