txt2html is a Perl program that converts plain text to HTML.
It supports headings, lists, simple character markup, and hyperlinking, and is
highly customizable. It recognizes some of the apparent structure of the
source document (mostly whitespace and typographic layout), and attempts to
mark that structure explicitly using HTML.
The purpose for this tool is to provide an easier way of converting existing
text documents to HTML format, giving something nicer than just whapping the
text into a big PRE block. txt2html can also be used to aid in writing new
HTML documents, but there are probably better ways of doing that.
