HTML2LATEX(1)		FreeBSD	General	Commands Manual		 HTML2LATEX(1)

NAME
     html2latex	-- convert HTML	markup to LaTeX	markup

SYNOPSIS
     html2latex	[opt] [file ...]

DESCRIPTION
     For each file argument, html2latex	converts the text as HTML markup to
     LaTeX markup.  If no files	are specified, a usage message is given.  In-
     put will be taken from standard input for files named -.  Output will to
     a similarly named file with a `.tex' extension ( html2latex recognises
     `.html' extensions).

     Options modify the	action of html2latex.

     The options are:

	   -n	Number sections.

	   -p	Place page breaks after	the title page (if present) and	the
		table of contents (if present).

	   -c	Generate a table of contents.

	   -s	Create no files	-- LaTeX is output to stdout.

	   -t Title
		Generate a title page, with the	title Title.

	   -a Author
		Generate a title page, with the	author Author.

	   -h Header
		Place the text Header after `\begin{document}'.

	   -f Footer
		Place the text Footer before `\end{document}'.

	   -o Options
		Specify	the options to `\documentstyle'.

EXAMPLES
     An	example	of use is

	   html2latex -n - < file.html | less

     This converts file.html to	LaTeX and pages	through	the output.  The sec-
     tions (corresponding to heading tags in the HTML source) will be num-
     bered.

     Another example is

	   html2latex -t 'Introduction to HTML'	-a gnat	\
	   -p -c -o '[bookman]{article}' html-intro

     This takes	input from the file html-intro,	writing	to html-intro.tex, and
     adds a title page (with title Introduction	to HTML	and author gnat) and
     table of contents with page-breaks	after both.  The sections of the docu-
     ment are not numbered.  The LaTeX source includes the line
     `\documentstyle[bookman]{article}'.

SEE ALSO
     latex(1).

BUGS
     Current the only HTML tags	supported are: TITLE, H1, H2, H3, H4, H5, H6,
     UL, OL, DL, DT, DD, LI, B,	I, U, EM, STRONG, CODE,	SAMP, KBD, VAR,	DFN,
     CITE, LISTING.  The only recognised SGML escapes are `&amp.amp',
     `&amp.lt',	`&amp.gt'.  ADDRESS tags are handled badly.

     The COMPACT attribute to a	DL tag is not recognised.  MENU	and DIR	styles
     are not handled well.  TITLE text are ignored.

     Currently PRE tags	are not	handled	at all.

     The entire	file is	read into memory.  For long HTML documents on machines
     with little memory, this may cause	problems.

CREDITS
     Nathan Torkington adapted the HTML	parser from NCSA's Xmosaic package
     (file://ncsa.uiuc.edu/Web/xmosaic)	and wrote the conversion code.	The
     HTML parser code is subject to the	NCSA restrictions.  The	conversion
     code is subject to	the VUW	restrictions.  Enquiries should	be sent	via e-
     mail to `Nathan.Torkington@vuw.ac.nz'.
