Agreed, this would be much better. I did actually notice there was a  
HTML formatter and tried it but it was a bit dodgy as you say so I  
rolled my own basic results printer.

Please do. From what I can see, all you should need to do is  
pass :format => :html into the runner, stop using the ResultsPrinter  
and instead simply puts result.raw_output.

I've got no problem with this though it might have to wait a few days  
as I'm really busy.
