Dear Docutils users,
I finally managed to publish my long running project of a no-CSS HTML writer.
It is now in the Sandbox, available under
with a description in
(links at docutils.sourceforge.net will hopefully be updated soon).
HTML writer for lightweight browsers
The HTML Writer module, docutils/writers/html4css1.py produces XHTML
compatible with the XHTML 1.0 specification. Correct rendering of the HTML
produced depends on the CSS support of the browser. Browsers without full
CSS support (lightweight browsers, older browsers, text-only browsers, help
viewers) produce inferior results.
However, correct rendering of HTML+CSS requires considerable resources in
form of program code, memory space and computation time. On older
machines or in embedded devices this might pose a serious problem.
Another example is a HTML help viewer of a program. It should start up
fast ("immediately") and not take too much resources.
Editing and generating documentation with reStructuredText is possible with
modest requirements on computer power. Viewing the result should be as well.

Nice work! I don't have time to evaluate it, but as a Lynx user, I'm
very happy you did this!
