HTMLPlug "smartblock" is soooo dumb

Description

HTMLPlug "smartblock" is supposed to block the images contained in HTML files from processing by plugins further down the pipeline (ie ImagePlug?). But it fails, notably on the Tudor collection which is used as the basis for some of our exercises. In these cases, removing the smartblock option (ie reinstating the default dumbblock) produces good results. It is very hard (and embarrassing) to continually have to tell students this at Greenstone workshops.

The solution is to figure out properly which images belong to HTML files, and then block these images and only these images from processing further down the plugin pipeline. --Ian

Global blocking pass through all the files?? --kath
