hi folks, thought many would have uses for this one!

from free download a day:

Cometdocs online file conversion 
October 23rd, 2009 

runs as Online Service

How many different file formats do you imagine there are out there? There are 
oodles of proprietary formats-Word's DOC files, Excel's XLS, to name a few-as
well as bunches of special-purpose formats. And then there's the joy of the 
incompatibility of DOS, UNIX, and Mac file formats (darn those end-of-line
characters!). So how do you get them all to play nice?

Cometdocs is a free online service that helps you convert files from one format 
to another. Whether it's PDF-ing a Word DOC, or turning that PDF file into
a Word DOC, if you can imagine it, these guys can probably accomplish it. They 
can also work with many legacy file formats, turning your old word processing
docs into something that you can use today. 

They've also got some special tricks up there sleeves. Run a directory listing 
of your website and they can spit-out a Google XML sitemap file. Submit a
scanned PDF or TIFF file and their OCR tools will give your content back to you 
in electronic format.

Cometdocs is free, and you don't even have to sign up to use it. You'll need a 
web browser, and that's about it, so it doesn't make any difference which
platform you're running.

if you have questions for me on this, P! L! E! A! S! E! (Please!) write me off 
list or contact me on MSN,

have a great day!
