Aha ... tfm works, but tfm -html may fail.

If the program fails to find the html file, it will check the original 
distribution directory. Unfortunately, if it does find an html file ... 
it may be from version 3. I forgot about the tfm -html option when we 
moved the files.

A fix will take a few days to test. EMBASSY html documentation is not 
under the embassy package, so TFM will have to check the ACD file to 
find the EMBASSY package name. Easy enough - several other programs do 
it - but needs quite a few tests to make sure it does it correctly in 
all cases.
