I have been (very slowly) working on simplifying HTML export modes for some 
time. So far all of the differences between the modes have turned out to be 
useless with modern browsers. At this point the difference between the 
remaining three formats (IE, Netscape, Writer) is just that Netscape does not 
support "full styles" and IE does not support HTMLMODE_FRM_COLUMNS (whatever 
that means).

So I'm fairly sure that we could remove the whole option and just use the 
"LibreOffice Writer" mode unconditionally. But I haven't yet had the time to 
look at this carefully enough to be sure.
