Jack,

Why would I consider this offensive?  I agree.

The import can be improved somewhat by clever arrangement of a template.
But we have to leave this as an exercise for the user (or the user
community), so we can get DBT 10.5 shipping.  Much is improved, and I really
don't mind shipping an update that falls short of improving everything.

If I am not considered offensive by saying so, I wonder if there isn't
enough on the plate right now. There are always ways to turn html to plain
text before translation.  I had thought of ferretting out codes that didn't
translate.  I suppose a realated issue, very much down the road is what to
do with pdf files, which in spite of Adobe's claims are in the main far from
accessible.
