This file contains links to examples of AscToHTM conversions. AscToHTM did, of course,
create this HTML file from this source file .
Here's a contents list for this file:-
A weekly USENET post of CNET's newsletterLarge Examples
A typical MS-DOS help text file
The majority of this website :)External Sites
JafSoft's Introduction to the Internet
The AscToHTM on-line documentation
The rec.woodworking FAQ
The Red Alert FAQ
In this case a small policy file has been used to :-
- add background colour and a title
- limit the text size of the contents list
(Note, some of these features are added in V1.04, only available to registered users at this time)
This one started life as C:/WINDOWS/MSDOSDRV.TXT
In this example no post-processing has been done (except to add a link at the top), so you will see a number of residual errors (if you look hard enough :). This example has a generated contents list in a separate file. Again, note the automatic table detection has worked a treat.
Including this page.
We practice what we preach. Most of the pages on this site are converted from text using AscToHTM. Just look for the logo below at the foot of each page.
Many of the pages offer a source file hyperlink which allows you to look at the original text file. Since we use state-of-the art versions of the software, sometimes we use features not yet releaseed. We always welcome enquiries on how pages were made. Simply email info@ jafsoft.com.
Jaf's Introduction to the Internet is a suite of HTML pages has been generated from a single master text file (3,500 lines worth). Extensive use of AscToHTM's "link dictionary" feature has been made to add links to the glossary at key points in the text.
This example has had no post-conversion corrections made. That is, what you see is what AscToHTM produced, raw.
Naturally both the hTML and RTF versions of the AscToHTM on-line documentation are produced by our own software from a text file. The Windows Help file isn't (and it's an utter pain to write, see the cribsheet)... we may just have to write some software to do that too.
This documentation is supplied to users in "kit form" when you download AscToHTM, so that you can "roll your own" copy of the doco.
Again this demonstrates AscToHTM's ability to break a single document into separate HTML pages, with a contents list, navigation bars and standard headers and footers.
It also demonstrates TABLE generation in quite a few places. You can view the files used to generate this document.
Embedded HTML has been used to insert images.
Again, no post-conversion corrections have been made.
Many of our users prefer to keep their use of AscToHTM a "trade secret". So a special thank you to sites who have allowed us to link to them
The author has used AscToHTM to split a large document into pages, and used AscToHTM's ability to insert header and footer HTML to good effect by using this to place each page inside a standard navigations "frame". He's also used AscToHTM to choose a colour scheme suited to the topic.
As far as I can make out, little post-conversion (if any) has been necessary. This allows the FAQ to be maintained in text - a more suitable format for mailing and posting to USENET.
Here is version 1.04 of Roger Wong's excellent Red Alert FAQ. This is the last free version of the FAQ which Roger has agreed we can convert to HTML and host.

In this example no pre-processing was required (for example notice how the tables in chapter 13 were recognised as tables and marked up accordingly).
The original document is over 2,000 lines long. That's not a problem, AscToHTM has been known to convert documents 25 times larger. There's no theoretical limit to the size of file (a registered) AscToHTM can handle, as the program is designed to work within a fixed amount of memory.
Using AscToHTM Roger Wong has produced a multi-paged HTML version 2.00 of this FAQ. This newer version is now available commercially.
