Hi folks,

I'm a bit confused by the err_html_text configuration directive. It is
escaping all special characters...I can see how this would be useful if
/only/ a URL is supposed to go there--but why call it err_html_text and
explain in the documentation that it is for "HTML text to include in
error messages". If you put HTML text in this field it is converted
into an escaped string, which is distinctly not HTML.

I'll submit a patch to change the documentation if this is the way it is
supposed to act...if it shouldn't be acting this way, then I'll give a
go to altering it (but my perusal of errorpage.c and MemBuf.c are not
giving indicators about where the escaping is happening).
