Doing web development I often have a need to convert a huge batch of existing HTML files to more simply-formatted text files suitable for importing or pasting into a CMS like WordPress. I finally found a great tool to make that job easier. Detagger, from JafSoft Limited costs less than $30 and has an incredible array of configuration options to get the output files you need. In the one case where I had some difficulty, the developer provided an almost immediate response and fix, on the weekend no less. You can pick up an evaluation copy or buy a copy at the JafSoft web site at http://www.jafsoft.com/detagger/html-to-text.html.
