Ok, ok, you're right. Shoebox is GREAT, even if it only -does- run on ToyOS(tm)es. Oh well. (And for those of you who couldn't make heads or tails of it - try again, and read the docs, -all- of them. SB can do so much more than just serve as a dictionary-tool.) But: Shoebox can't export directly to html. Which is bad. So I've spent the last week or so on making a 'shoebox-to-html' converter, which is good. (I hope.) It is still quite lacking, especially in the 'nice bells and whistles' department, but it's definitely a start. It uses about a second per hundred words on my machine. It needs Python 1.5 to run, as Perl has been annoying me lately, and I -hate- doing textfiles in C. If anyone's interested, I'll mail it to the list later. tal.
