Thank you.

Anyone got a strict HTML -> RTF converter?

I've got my resume in HTML as a base format, with a Makefile to convert
it to PS, PDF, and text formats, as well as update the online copy
automajickally.  Text -> RTF works...sorta.  It looks like shit.

Hmm...  Googling...

Microsoft Patent Oppression Satellite W3C lists a set of tools:


    MS Word / RTF

    - html2rtf translates HTML to RTF. Using this program and the
      standard windows help compiler, you can convert hyperlinked Web
      pages into Windows HLP files. Contact:
      [Note:  domain does not exist]

    - hh2rtf is a set of freeware perl scripts that converts most
      HtmlHelp formatted HTML to WinHelp-ready RTF. Contact:
      steve@blighty.com (Steve Atkins).

db2rtf seems to be the most likely suspect under existing Debian
packages.  Not  sure 'zactly what needs to be done to an HTML file to
make it legal SGML.  Anyone?
