Puppy universal dd (Pudd)

This is an ancient script, I think that the last time I did any work on it was in 2007.

Recently, npierce fixed some bugs in the script (/usr/sbin/Pudd):

So, I decided to take a good look at the script, and found lots of things that need improving or fixing.
Note though, I haven't actually tested the changes -- only have my laptop setup right now, and reluctant to test Pudd on it.

Woof commit:

Note, Pudd is not yet internationalized -- I thought maybe we should test it a bit first.

"Does basichtmlviewer render Pudd.htm not very nicely? There isn't anything specific with html5, see please. max-width is CSS and does what it means: You can have smaller width without scroll bar and on wide screen its easier to read. [url=][img][/img]
