On second thought, I don't really need it because in this case, i.e., the
presentation of search results, it is probably better to simply remove all
HTML tags anyway.

All right, I've reworked removeHTMLtags() a little bit and put the ruby
tags into the allowed list.

Please everybody, give it a try. Throw some good HTML at it and make
sure it doesn't break, and some bad HTML at it to make sure it breaks
politely. (I don't want a repeat of the recent cut-in-half
talk:Beryllium incident!)

I've also changed most of the &s in URLs into &amp;s so that the HTML
validator likes us better, and moved the </BODY></HTML> tags to *after*
the page content instead of before it. *cough cough*
