there exits a command line program called convert lit
convert lit converts lit files into html files.
info is here:
http://www.kyz.uklinux.net/convlit.php
as of this date, a windows version may be downloaded at:
http://www.convertlit.com/clit18.zip

a gui front end for the command line version is available here:
http://www.hot.ee/dukelupus/ConvertLIT.htm
the download link is:
http://www.hot.ee/dukelupus/ConvertLIT%20GUI%20v2.0.exe

i have not yet tested the gui 2.0 as to it's speech reader friendliness.

there also exists a set of batch files that allows the conversion program
to be associated with the right click menu to allow easier  use
this worked with c lit 1.5 but i have not tested it with 1.8.
i do not see a source for these right click files available in  a quick
check on google.

r. a. d.
whether the blind loophole in the copyright law applies to this is a =
legal
matter that i have not heard anyone address.
