A pointer to an immutable memory region would be "const htmlEntityDesc *", 
and there would be no warning. What you have there now, "const 
htmlElemDescPtr", gives you an immutable pointer to a mutable memory 
region -- it's equivalent to "htmlEntityDesc * const", and it is 
meaningless for a return type.

  Oh, okay, I always make a typedef for pointers to structs, and that's
the first time I get a difference in semantic :-\

  I have tried to clean up the code in this respect, Albert that
would be great if you could check the enclosed patch on the Irix/AIX
