Summary: a customizable text processor for generating markup from simple text
Description: 
otl converts a text file written in a simple user-defined format
to another user-defined format (by default, XHTML). For example, by
default "--joebob-- is big" is converted to "<span style="font-weight:
bold;">joebob</span> is big". otl is more than a search/replace
front-end. otl can process structures such as ordered and unordered lists
(nested or unnested), add custom "headers" and "footers" to documents,
etc. The conversion process is customizable and utilizes perl regex,
adding quite a bit of flexibility to the transformation process. Since
other types of markup (e.g., XHTML tags) can be included in the source
text file to be processed, any markup (e.g., markup which otl currently
doesn't produce by default such as MathML) can be included in the document
in a straightforward fashion. Since both the syntax of the source file
and of the output can be readily customized, otl can be used for many
types of conversions (feel free to submit your ".otl" file if you make
a new one). The package also includes tag-remove, a script for stripping
XML tags from documents.
