With 1.0.3 on RH7.3, I have technical documents created with an older
Netscape, html of course, which I would like to be able to convert over
to abw. Some small ones do, but normally I get the "bogus" message.
I've tried tidy -clean -asxhtml and -asxml, but to no avail. The small
html I created with abiword could be read back in provided I tidied it
I'd appreciate it if someone could tell me what the current state,
thoughts, and recommendations are about importing html. Is there hope
for me, here?.
Also, maybe I'm being simplistic and/or naive, but it seemed to me
that if abiword would indicate something about what it found fault with,
I could possibly stumble around in the original and hand-edit the
offending stuff out?
For now I still want the html output, because I use html2ps -> ps2pdf
-> acrobat reader to get a table of contents and numbered pages and
avoid Netscape's weird printing anomolies (though it seems to add some
of its own), but I would like to be ready when Abi does its own TOC.
That is going to be Soooo sweet!
Thanks for any thoughts on the subject.
