if eLyXer is to be the default LyX exporter for HTML, I would tend to agree 
with Jack that a footer should be optional but turned off by default. I don't 
have a strong opinion on this, but I am looking at it by analogy to the main 
"export" format for LyX, which is PDF. There, we don't have a footer saying 
"created using LaTeX" either...

The HTML code already identifies eLyXer in the "generator" meta tag anyway, so 
a footer seems a bit too intrusive (even though traditionally it is true that 
HTML converters such as latex2html have that by default). Even in htlatex 
(tex4ht) there is no footer when I (e.g.) use it to export ODT format. The 
difference between eLyXer and earlier HTML converters is that it directly 
parses LyX syntax and doesn't go through LaTeX, so I would say eLyXer should 
not have a default footer if tex4ht doesn't insert one, either.

Best wishes,
