A conversion program from hytelnet format to HTML is
on the web. The overview is on
All that loverly data was too good to miss!

It uses the <PRE> format a lot, so you need the WWWLibarry version 1.1
or later in your browser (or the display looks a mess).

You could use the htn2html program recursively to convert a whole bunch of
hytelnet-style files into html. You would then have the option of
editing them to put pointers to other things than telnet sites and files
on the same system, and you could introduce some fancier formatting.

Alternatively, you cn just run a server which converts on the fly as
we now do on http://info.cern.ch:8002/w3start.txt
