mkisofs lets you create an ISO9660 with both Rock Ridge and Joliet
extensions, and the old TRANS.TBL format, too.  As long as the hrefs in
the HTML work properly, you shouldn't have a problem with the CDROM
under *nix and 'doze.  Macs I wouldn't know about... but I can only
assume that they've done the right thing and support RR extensions.

Insert line about assumption being the mother of all fsckups.
