You'll need to hack the source, but it shouldn't be too hard.
Assuming you're using Mailman 2.0.5, look in the Mailman/Cgi/admin.py
file, 'round about line 286.  See where it says:

                            'Edit the HTML for the public list pages'))

Comment out those two lines (put `#' at the beginning of each line).
For added safety, remove the $prefix/cgi-bin/edithtml binary -- where
$prefix is the install directory -- and remove `edithtml' from the
CGI_PROGS variable in src/Makefile.in.
