Getting plot-to-html.sh for labsheet 2

Everyone else has probably long completed this labsheet. But if there are any stragglers like me who are getting the following error when attempting to run plot-to-html.sh on Ubuntu:

./plot-to-html.sh: 26: ./plot-to-html.sh: Syntax error: "(" unexpected
The solution is to replace the shebang on the first line of the file /bin/sh with the line #!/bin/bash. Otherwise Ubuntu will use dash instead of bash as the shell for executing the file which causes some kind of error. I'd be interested to know why the error occurs and what differences exist between the two shells if anyone has any idea.
