script that fixes nonstandard Microsoft HTML
so that it will display properly on non-Microsoft computers. For example, apostrophes become question marks because of a feature called smartquotes
. For example:
I picked up the dog?s food bowl. It?s strange how delicious the dog?s food looked. But it?s the dog?s food, not mine, so I left it alone.
What demoronizer fixes (from the man page):
- The missing semicolon at the end of numeric character
escapes (=) is supplied.
- Numeric renderings of special characters (< > &) are replaced with readable equivalents.
- Unquoted <table> tags containing non-alphanumeric
characters are quoted.
- PowerPoint's mis-nesting of <font> and <strong> tags
- PowerPoint's boneheaded use of <ul> and </ul> tags to
accomplish paragraph breaks is corrected and the
proper <p> tags inserted.
- Missing <tr> tags in text-only slides are inserted.
- Nugatory </p> tags are removed.
- Unmatched <li> tags in headings are removed.
- Idiot "paragraph-long lines" are broken into something suitable for editing with a normal text editor.
