I feel that I must point this out because it is truely great.  I used a
text editor to write my html (er sgml) how I like.  With included entites
and shortrefs and comment littered all over the place.  The by the magic
of the following command (your's may vary slightly)

spam.exe -p -x -x -momittag -mshorttag -mms %1.html > %1.spam.html

Everything becomes HTML and parsable by common browsers.
