I don't understand this.  If a Browser supports HTML (and not IPP) and a
server does not support supplying HTML, how does the browser get this
HTML that it supports but nobody generates?  Or do you mean that since
the server supports HTML generation (optionally) then if it does not
support generating HTML, then Web Browsers just don't get HTML.
