[Haskell-cafe] References for topological arguments of programs?

I suggest to use Bhavik Mehta's page haskellformathematicians.wordpress.com if we can not find a more official place for it on haskell.org. At this point I'd like to thank Haskell Café member Sergiu Ivanov for inspiring me to start working on this.
Does anyone know whether literate haskell can be used to generate html?

It is planned to touch on many areas of mathematics, not only topology. If anyone would like to have a look at the current stage, I'd be happy to share the source.

Which makes sense, topologically: These so-called searchable sets are topologically compact, and the Eq constraint means the space is discrete. Compact subsets of a discrete space are finite.
