I'm still unlear as to what the "html" docs are. Do you want the Forrest
generated docs or the Daisy generated book docs?

A further alternative is to use wget to retrieve the docs direct from daisy.


With respect to Forrest. David Crossley and I have set up a forrestbot 
in the forrestzone to build the Cocoon docs at regular intervals. You 
can see the outoput of these builds at any time at

(still need to sort out an index.html page)

Each time this forrestbot builds it sends a success/failure message to 
nominated email address (currently myself and David). This will indicate 
any problems with respect to broken links in the site (of which there 
are currently many).

The Forrestbot uses the latest SVN head version of Forrest to build, 
thus it acts as a kind of GUMP for your docs.
