I built an HTML->MIF converter a long time ago. It's probably somewhat
out of date by now, but it worked well at the time. And this is not the
www_and_frame version: this is just a few hundred lines of ANSI C
code. It wouldn't be much trouble to update it and add an RTF writing


Here's my current version of the README for that package:
(this version is probably not in the tar file on

README for HTML design code/ideas as of Feb 1993.

This is just a collection of stuff I used to develop
the HTML spec.

Included are translators:
from to
plaintext html
html mif
plaintext mif

and perhaps some others.

I was working on an extesible, object-oriented architecture
for dealing with SGML documents and MIME bodies.
