An html version of Indian.cql which is not in the file.

Lewis Stiller comments with this improvement:

"The existing CQL 3.02 example gives all false positives from the sample output. 
The new 5.1 indian.cql is one of  the most interesting CQL files I have seen, in my opinion.
I think it's worth running to illustrate the use of comments, which can elucidate the structure of complex themes.
I do not know of any false negatives or false positives in the output; let me know if you find some."
