HTML Converter is getting less relevant over time because <APPLET> tag is more easier to use for Java Plug-in. Defer to future releases.

Fixed with: http://closedjdk.sfbay/jdk7/deploy/deploy/rev/05e359c53319

This change excludes the HtmlConverter binaries from the JDK distribution.
The final exclusion from the build could be done later as cleanup step after we decide what to do with the duplicate samples under demo/plugin that use object/embed tags. Will file a followup CR.
