Hi. I'm still looking for ASCII text to HTML converter too, but in the mean 
time a god converter to use is rtftohtml. You have to convert the ASCII 
files to RTF first, but the one that we used here at Calvin to convert 
the Calvin 1995-96 Catalog (http://www.calvin.edu/Calvin/catalog/),
rtftohtml for UNIX--it's not even an updated version--did a very good job 
with basic HTML tags. The files were originally created with Pagemaker, 
then we saved them in RTF format, converted them with rtftohtml to HTML, 
then editted them in HTML (to add links and extensions to make it look 
nicer). To convert from ASCII to RTF, you can just use any Word 
processing program (we used WordPerfect 6.1). I think it would be very 
difficult to try converting from ASCII to HTML directly, since HTML files 
are basically ASCII text files with .htm or .html extensions.
