One of the few programs I was able to compile (in Linux, not in DOS).
I see, when I finally put together the my mutt package, catdoc and
xcl2htm should be included.

Actually non graphic links is the best language transcription tool I
have ever seen. You can read German with ASCII font and see umlauts
as a:, o: and u:, you can read Czech web pages with ASCII 7bit and
have the diacritical symbols not above the letters, but following
them. And even a Russian web page appears in readable English
transcription. It is a pity that you cannot pipe the output of links
(lynx -dump option).

Is there any txt2doc? cvs corresponds to unformatted text, xcl is
formatted. But you can try to produce other higher formats. In DOS I
use Quatro Pro, and I think files from that program can be imported to
