I'll second Peter's modesty about improvements in
DBT's HTML importer.  Indeed it will be more than
interesting to see how it handles embossing its
own Help topics when put to the ultimate test -
real users.

I had to do a very, very quick translate of a
nasty web page today - I was surprised how little
tidying up I had to do.
