Remove dependency on HTML tidy

Removed HTML tidy from the the shell script. Not only does this
remove a dependency, it also removes the only asymmetrical part
of the generate/ungenerate process. This was preventing the script
from being properly reversible. Now (and with supporting changes
to the HTML template) the script runs both ways on the same site
and generates reproducible output each time.

A few months ago I lost the source files I used to generate my static website. Fortunately there was no irreparable data loss because I still had the generated site up on my server. The problem was now I needed to write a script that would extract all the articles into source files again, and then reconfigure the site generator. Then I went, "Oh. This is a Prolog problem." I figured if I could write a Prolog program that described my HTML template then I could use the same code both to un-generate and re-generate the website, because a Prolog program is basically a set of rules and the logic can be run in either direction. (But then I love Prolog so every problem is a Prolog problem but I don't care. Fight me.) -So the skinny is I wound up writing my own static website generator in Prolog. Well, the main components are in Prolog. I also wrote a bash script to make use of a bunch of common \*nix utilities (find, sed, grep, etc.) and to pipe output to some third-party programs where I needed them (HTML Tidy and it's still TBD, but possibly Pandoc in the future). Weirdest bit was that I just couldn't find anything decent to generate RSS feeds. I considered dropping the RSS all together, but I've spent enough time haranguing people for not supporting interoperable standards that I didn't want to be a hypocrite. I wound up writing my own RSS generator too, also in Prolog. +So the skinny is I wound up writing my own static website generator in Prolog. Well, the main components are in Prolog.
