htmllib, formatter

I'd like to make an almost verbatim copy of a html file. The only change 
would be in a SRC tag of <IMG SRC>. Is htmllib suitable for this?

In formatter.py, there's DumbWriter, which removes all HTML markup, but 
there is no "VerbatimWriter" which would keep all HTML as it is.

My html file may contain a lot of advanced HTML 4.0 markup. Since 
htmllib supports only HTML 2.0, how difficult it would be to create 
"VerbatimWriter"? I feel I would have to create "start_table", 
"start_tr", "start_td", "start_script", and a lot of other procedures.

This looks like an overkill if the aim is a simple modification of IMG 
SRC. Correct?
