You probably want 'wwwoffle.'
That's what I thought, but it doesn't seem to be available for Etch
Actually, according to packages.debian.org its not in Etch at all;
oldstable, testing, and unstable.
It's there in oldstable (Sarge):
Bugs.debian.org shows that it has a grave bug making it unuseable.
As Hugo Vanwoerkom said, bug #423646 is for the Sid version. You could
grab the source for Sarge's wwwoffle and try to build it under Etch:
Or you could go to the source to get the source:
Other than that, it may be exactly what I'm looking for. Perhaps by the

I've used wwwoffle happily for years. I'm sorry it was removed from

had to build it from the source anyway.
