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, 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?
