Seems to me a sitepoint author (Kevin Yank?) wrote a function that would generate html from a text file looking for "\r" or "\t" or both -- converting them into "<p>" or "<br>" [obviously before xhtml].

I can't find that function. And, in any case, would like to extend it to handle italics and bold using an OpenOffice text file (.odt) source.

I know there are "free" converters out on 'net -- but they require email address and cookies permissions -- I'd just as soon not (PRISM not withstanding).

Anyone got such an animal?
