[Jacks] RFA: Update jacks.html


-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Hi,

  The Jacks test suite includes a "jacks.html" that is now
quite out-of-date. This patch attempts to correct that.

OK?

I note two things:

1. The "jacks" top-level script explicitly refers to tclsh8.4,
while the stated requirements are that only Tcl 8.3 or better
is required. Why can't this be just "tclsh" instead of having
a hard-coded version?

2. The updated "jacks.html" should be put somewhere on the
Mauve website so that it is publicly accessible.

Thanks,
Ranjit.
