Re: [Re: Problem with Text translations]



Hi,

Use the -f (or --filter) option of sgmltools when converting to text.

It seems to be a SGMLtools or lynx problem. We have that here too and
I've asked for our maintainer see the options used in the conversion
proccess. 

The "^H" is used in conjunction with double letter for the bold
effect. See the document with less. The underscore is for getting
underline effect.
