    Does anyone know if there is any software that will allow someone to convert a text file to html on-the-fly?

    This what I am attempting to do.
    I have a text file with information like first name, last name, address, etc. I would like the user to do a search and have the information displayed back to him/her on their browser. I would like it to be formatted the same way evertime. For example: First Name Last Name
    Address, etc.

    Is this even possible?

    If you store the names and information in a database or a comma-separated text file you could then use a server side technology like PHP, ASP or PERL to provide what you need. There are many scripts available at: cgi.resourceindex.com www.scriptsearch.com www.aspin.com

    Hi,

    If your provider doesn't allow any server-side programs (as in the case of Almost OnLine -- aol). You can place the data into an array, save it as *.js file, and then import them into selection lists or search the array itself with client-side javascript.
    If interested, see the selection list scripts at my site.

    Older post but this is related...remembered that someone had asked this before

    Just signed up for the LockerGnome newsletter and received my first weekend issue. Weekend is not enough, will be going daily! Anyway...

    They had listed this program which is shareware and freeware both that appears to also change 'Text to HTML' - <A HREF="http://www.jafsoft.com/asctohtm/" TARGET=_blank>AscToHTM
    </A>

    Going to download the trial and see what it can do...
