I looked that over a few days ago, but it appears to do a pretty crappy
job of converting it. It drops all pictures, most of the formatting, and
page breaks. It's really atrocious.
Take a look at what I checked in the other day -- that's 100x better.
I'd prefer something like that, that can be useful to people.
