The script attached generates two HTML tables in files
specified on the command line.

    usage:  encodingaliases.py
<language-oriented-codecs-html-file>
<non-language-oriented-codecs-html-file>

A static list of codecs in this script is used because the
language description is not available in the python runtime.
 Codecs found in the encodings.aliases.aliases list are
added to the list, but will be described as "unknown" encodings.

The "bijectiveType" was, like the language descriptions,
taken from the current (2.4.1) documentation.

It would be much better for the descriptions and "bijective"
type settings to come from the runtime.  The problem is one
of maintenance.  Without these available for introspection
in the runtime, a new encoding with no alias will never be
identified.  When it does appear with an alias, it can only
be described as "unknown."
