[Mailman-Users] won't let me edit the HTML

I have an update on this.  I was trying to pinpoint exactly what 
"change" caused this, and as I deleted changes, starting with the 
link, I still kept getting the same rejection.  Then I just went to 
edit the page, and made no changes at all, clicked on Submit Changes, 
and it *still* gave me the rejection.  Am I missing something?
