There is something funny in the javadoc in the .gz.  Somehow the @author 
tags were transformed incorrectly.  Here is the HTML source for the 
author element from the .gz/docs for CharSetUtils (same happens for 
every class that has more than one author):

<dt><b>Author:</b><dd><a href="">Henri

, Stephen Colebourne</dd>
, Phil Steitz</dd>

On Mozilla, at least, this causes extra line breaks.

When I use the 1.4.2 doclet to generate, I get well-formed HTML:

   <dd><a href="">Henri Yandell</a>, Stephen 
Colebourne, Phil Steitz</dd>

What JDK did you use to generate the javadoc?  Is this a known bug/feature?
