HTML detection

Hi JB,

Any correct html file contains <html> and the htmlText property  
always contains <p> and </p> even if the owner of the property is  
empty. A text that doesn't contain the < and > characters isn't an  
html text. Of course, once you have modified that text using a script  
or if you have only a small part of the html code, these "rules" no  
longer apply.
