Basically I'm finding to simple errors:

 * an iterable where it expects a list, I solved it using a simple list
comprehension on the original iterable
 * it tries to write a string to the socket, I used "UTF-8" both in the
Content-Type header and in the conversion to bytes. It could easyly be

This two changes enabled me to get a basic pydoc running.

If the problem with the output of filter is solved at the call site I'd
suggest the second hunk of:

$ svn diff Lib/

                 indices = ['<p>' + html.bigsection(
                     'Built-in Modules', '#ffffff', '#ee77aa',

instead, i.e. use a simple list comprehension instead of the filter
expression (ugly) and list(names). The first hunk removes a useles
expression, I'm not sure why it is there, but filter has no side
effects. It looks like attrs = filter... is intended, but then, again a
list comprehension would be clearer.
