I can't find the source with the correct markup anywhere in the tree.
I only find generated HTML files, I think.

I hope we're not planning on editing generated HTML-files, because
that'd be a nightmare. It'd be like adding functionality and fixing bugs
in Derby by directly modifying the compiled class files.

8 minutes for me, actually Forrest seems to be built to allow for
dynamic generation of pages from source, so one may not need to
actually update/checkin html pages, but I guess that's a totally
another issue.
