Gerolf asked that I fwd this to the FreeDOS lists for him:

Dear FreeDOS Team!

The first public test version of Markup Shredder (GMS), the typesetting program 
that uses TeX for document conversion from HTML to PDF, is now available for 
download from my website at

GMS runs under Linux, Dos (including FreeDOS) and Windows on Intel-386 
compatible machines. It comes with 300 kilobytes of TeX macros and twice that 
amount of shell, batch and Perl scripts in order to realize an HTML parser and 
a font metric processor together with three simple user interfaces.

Please do not expect Markup Shredder to be such an intelligent renderer as 
Mozilla or Internet Explorer! It cannot handle auto-width or multi-page tables, 
and it supports only a subset of HTML element tags, attributes, and Cascading 
Style Sheet (CSS) properties.

Being a young program, it is also still a bit buggy. Therefore, users will have 
to slightly modify their input files to get a satisfactory PDF conversion, and 
they should acquire basic knowledge of the markup language to do this.

Merry Christmas!
