[wwwdocs] bin/preprocess and <DIV> vs <div>

<div> is both a tag in recent HTML and XHTML standards as well as a keyword
to denote division in MetaHTML.  I believe we came across this eons ago and
had this addresses in MetaHTML, but the workaround used there transform the
<div> tag to <DIV>, which -- XHTML being case-sensitive -- fails to validate.

The easiest fix for us is to convert <DIV back to <div.

  Use sed to work around MetaHTML brokenness wrt. <DIV>.

Installed after successfully testing on for a couple of days.
This will also fix our replica main page at
