Documentation adjusted in bde3956c9b1d. Punting "regression fix" aspect 'til later.

Passing an html file to -i without --force-html now results in an assertion failure in mainline. That definitely needs to be fixed before release.

It'll be a while before I'd get to fixing the regression (which itself is pretty old), perhaps it's best just to update the docs to reflect current behavior, so it's at least accurate. Can leave the bug open to retarget the behavioral change for a later date.

Docs claim that --force-html is unnecessary when feeding HTML files as the input for -i, but Wget seems to have trouble parsing without it.

I think this may be a regression, as I think the input-file code was rewritten sometime in the last couple years.
