but am so excited I can't help jumping in.  I'm running before I can walk
here.  :-)

Yesterday I tried outputting test results to HTML instead of colorized
plain text.  It looked like there were some entries in the change log for
the 1.0.5 release allowing RSpec to do what I wanted.

I tried adding a setting to spec.opts but it didn't work to say the least.
 Here's the change log entry:

1.  Does this do what I think it should?

It looks like CI::Reporter [could] output XML format but can it be used

I'm mining the documentation for related information but didn't find it so

Thank you for your help in advance.
