No, it is even worse :-). There was a bug in the htmlize code
which cause the emulator to crash when the string to htmlize 
was to big. I think the binary code created to much garbage, or 
something. I rewrote it to use lists instead which made it much
faster and working.

What was even worse than that was that one of the examples, which 
trigged this behaviour, contained a bit of a security hole (now 
fixed as well), so perhaps it was a good thing that yaws.hyber.org
crashed :-)
