[New-bugs-announce] [issue5698] pydoc -w doesn't produce proper HTML

New submission from Matthias Klose <doko at debian.org>:

[forwarded from http://bugs.debian.org/411524]

If you feed the output of pydoc -w [some module] to the w3 validator, it
complains about two issues:
firstly, the doctype is wrong. It should be:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
[note case]

Secondly, no charset is specified. Just doing
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=utf-8" > in
the head
would probably do.
