      html2latex -- convert HTML markup to LaTeX markup

      html2latex [opt ...] [file ...]

      For each file argument, html2latex converts the text as HTML markup to
      LaTeX markup. If no files are specified, a usage message is given.
      Input 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:

         Number sections. -p
         Place page breaks after the title page (if present) and the table
         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'.

      An example of use is

      html2latex -n - < file.html | less

      This converts file.html to LaTeX and pages through the output. The
      sections (corresponding to heading tags in the HTML source) will be

      Another example is

      html2latex -t 'Introduction to HTML' -a gnat -p -c 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 document are not numbered.


      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,
      &, & 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.

      (file:// and wrote the conversion code. The
