Web page rendering needs to be made w3c compliant
The rendering engine used in ptII/kepler is about 10 years out of date. It gets confused on elements like end tags and fully relies on tables for layout. We need to add a better rendering engine for showing html if we want to continue to support html documentation.

Ptolemy uses javax.swing.JEditorPane in actor.gui.HTMLViewer
In Ptolemy, to invoke the user browser (IE, Firefox etc.),
append #in_browser to a URL.
