If you're using a graphical browser you'll see a "browse" button that will
open a file browser where you can select a file from your system. If
you're using a text mode browser, you enter the full path to the file in
the blank. I get the same 404 error for the "Explain" link, regardless of
what browser I use.

No. Just came across this service recently. I had seen and used the CERN
one previously, but it does not offer so many different conversion options
as this one. If you use this or other features, please post on how it
worked/didn't work. This service could be helpful to BL users.
