Before or after my getdate patch? Does strftime care that the weekday
is not set in the tm structure, even if we don't ask it to output it?
Maybe it would help to zero it out.

Given that it's crashing in Deserialize(), I'd say it's a safe bet that
it's a database problem. I don't see anything wrong with the HTML file,
nor do I see how a bad HTML file could cause a problem in Deserialize(),
unless the HTML parser when haywire and started stomping on memory all
over the place.
I did notice that Deserialize() only checks to see that s is less than
end once per deserialized object, but not while deserializing each object.
There really should be tests in all the macros in there to make sure that
you NEVER look beyond the end of the input string, otherwiese a corrupt
database could easily lead it astray!
