Thanks for the note. I also do not use converters as a rule,
but I know that my company is coming up on some jobs for our
client that will involve converting many documents. I am
generally happy working in HotDog, an HTML editor.
So far, you are the only person who has said that you've tried
Web Publisher. I hadn't heard about its love of the

yet convinced that Web Publisher is worth the price difference, and
I know that HTML Transit is good.
