Please be careful of your hands! Don't injure yourself coding, it's
NOT worth it.

No, what I meant was make the `help' method force the mime type in the
same way the `translate' method does. Sorry if I was unclear. Look at
the translate method, see how it forces the mime type when processing
the -default-mime-type flag, and make the `help' method do the same
thing (since it is also a translator, just a more complicated
one). The `help' method knows that the results back from the pipe will
be HTML, even if the `pipe' method doesn't.
